The Essays on Childhood (EOC) project supports, nurtures, and promotes writers of creative nonfiction to reveal both personal and universal childhood experience.

Listen to Gaucher talk about the Essays on Childhood project in her interview with Beth Vorhees of West Virginia Public Radio here.

Services provided to clients include:

  • Technical assistance and writing resources;
  • Networking opportunities with other writers;
  • Editing services and other feedback on written work and concepts;
  • Promotion of writers and their work through social media outlets and partners of Longridge Editors LLC.

Being honest with ourselves, being vulnerable, and being real is important. As we go, not all essays will be about the beauty of childhood. I think one of the most valuable things that can happen in the project’s development is to provide a place to reflect on parts of childhood that are not easy or kind. Either way, I know the project will keep moving forward, and only grow in its mission to reveal the influence and power of our experiences as children on who we are today.
