Writing

Galen writes predominantly about trans issues and day-to-day life as a trans woman. Her work spans from opinion, education, and advocacy pieces to pieces of a more literary nature. Often enough, her work falls somewhere between the two. She is currently working on a novel, and occasionally dabbles in short fiction.

At this time, all of Galen’s work is self-published on Medium.com. Her pieces can be found in two different publications on Medium, TransSubstantiation (opinion, education, and advocacy) and TransScribe (literary). These publications are open to submissions from other trans folks and allies. If you are interested in submitting to these publications, please reach out via the Contact page.
