Brittany Priore - The Write Dose
Brittany Priore is the Founding Editor-In-Chief of The Write Dose, an online women’s magazine that gives women a platform to use their voice, shout their stories, and to relate to women who share similar experiences or traumas. Driven by her passion and desire to create an inclusive online space for women, Brittany created The Write Dose in 2017. Today, they continue to grow and inspire, and they welcome writers, photographers, and artists alike to contribute to The Write Dose.
Brittany has always loved to write, and the opportunity to express herself creatively through The Write Dose has been both empowering and liberating. Since its launch, Brittany has empowered women around the world to share their truth and spread their messages of vulnerability, passion, and growth. With every story and article that’s shared, she’s created a space that welcomes diversity, inclusivity, and exploration. There’s something really beautiful and powerful about expressing ourselves in a way that allows us to relate to others. When we step forward in that authenticity and vulnerability, when we’re able to foster connection around shared experiences, we’re better able to love ourselves and accept ourselves entirely. It’s powerful stuff, and it’s something I’ve learned first-hand. This is exactly the space that Brittany has created with The Write Dose - a beautiful community that lifts you up, encourages you to speak your truth, all while remaining true to you.
Brittany was one of my very first guests on the podcast (Episode 10! You can check it out here) and I’m so grateful for her friendship, guidance, and support over the last year. It’s amazing what comes from showing up as your full self, and the relationships and connections you can make when you choose to create something from your heart, passion and joy. I can’t wait for you all to learn more about Brittany, her joys and passions, what she’s created with her community, and follow along and learn more!
I'd love it if you'd introduce yourself, what you do, and what you're working on.
My name is Brittany Priore. I'm an advocate for human welfare and for the equality of racial and gender privilege. I have an innate passion for the human mind while also possessing deep empathy. Naturally, that led me to the field of psychology; however, it initially led me to the field of writing. Those two passions have made me who I am today which is a humanitarian and feminist. Those two qualities have also led me to where I am today which is the Founding Editor-In-Chief of The Write Dose, an online women’s magazine that gives women a platform to use their voice, shout their stories, and to relate to women who share similar experiences or traumas.
How did you get started?
I took what is probably the least recommended route to take: I quit my job that I was unhappy with -- although, it was a very great position with a successful company, and I started The Write Dose with a mere concept and absolutely no knowledge of online publications and website developing.
What inspired the work that you're doing?
I'm not sure if there was one thing that inspired me to create The Write Dose. It was more of a correlation of wanting to see relatable and informative content online, wanting to create an inclusive space for women, and wanting to give women a platform that allowed them to be heard and to empower them to use their voices.
What is your biggest passion? Do you feel like you're living your passion and purpose?
For the first time in my life, I can genuinely and wholeheartedly say I am living my passion and purpose.
What is your joy blueprint? What lights you up, brings you joy, and makes you feel the most alive?
Writing is, without a doubt, my joy blueprint. Writing, for me, takes the form of therapy. It's a creative outlet that allows me to cope with the hardships I'm facing. I wildly enjoy the creative process of staying up late and carving my thoughts and emotions into poetic structures. For me, writing has become a way to truly empower and invoke the exploration of life. Literature has always been a therapeutic escapism for me and while therapy will always be primarily advocated for any kind of psychological warfare, I believe literature can be just as influential. Reading about another individual’s growth or healing process during and after an experience similar to your own can be incredibly liberating.
How do you live intentionally? Are there tools/resources/practices that you rely on to help you stay mindful and grounded?
Whether it's good or bad, I am someone who strongly stands by my morals and has immense respect for anyone who stands by theirs -- even if ours differ greatly. So, each day, I try.
What would your younger self think about what you're doing now?
I think she would be so proud, happy, and relieved to see that we've overcome some of our most difficult hardships and that we've channeled them into a beautiful place that helps other women do the same.
Do you have a go-to mantra or affirmation?
"I am worthy and I am enough."
What is your biggest dream?
To become a published YA author!
