About us

Feminine Collective publishes original stories from new, emerging and established writers and poets.

These are unique human interest stories not found in mainstream media.

We are committed to providing a platform for these voices to be heard on every aspect of the human condition–their lives, loves, families, disappointments, successes, illnesses, challenges and chronicling their everyday lives.

Real. Raw. With unfiltered voices.

The Birth of Feminine Collective:

The Feminine Collective concept was created by Julie Anderson on August 13, 2013.

Launched officially in January 2014 by Julie Anderson, it became a California nonprofit corporation in December 2015.

Prior to Feminine Collective, Julie Anderson enjoyed a two-decade long career as a supermodel—where she has been the face of influential luxury brands and a cover girl on international editions of Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. Her international connections have brought high-end makeup artists, clothing designers, and several other high-profile writers as the first magazine contributors.

In addition to producing Feminine Collective, Julie continues to appear in commercials, write for other publications and has been featured guest on several online blogs.

Mission:

Feminine Collective’s mission is to empower, educate and entertain by the publication of unique stories, poems, and prose on issues facing women, men, and girls in today’s world.

The Raw & Unfiltered Anthology VOL 1:

In 2015, Feminine Collective published our first anthology of selected works from writers on the magazine. The anthology included 99 essays, poems, and prose from 38 contributors. A portion of sales is contributed to the Feminine Collective Foundation.

“In the pages of this book you will hear your deeper voice and touch the raw places of yourself where angels fear to tread and as you read them watch out because you just might become fearless and unbound.”

―Agapi Stassinopoulos, Author, Unbinding the Heart: A Dose of Greek Wisdom, Generosity, and UnconditionalLove

“Getting to the core: the authentic, mindful, soul baring, gut-wrenching and often tearful core is what Feminine Collective aims to achieve. The brutal honesty in RAW&UNFILTERED is a call to action for women everywhere to get real, speak up, put their shoulders back and demand to be loved–by themselves.

―Dominique Sachse, Evening news anchor, KPRC-TV Houston, YouTube vlogger

 “The writers featured in Raw&Unfiltered have all told their stories with a fierce passion that transcends the pages of this book and will leave you thinking long after you have put it down. The essays and poems included are a diverse mix of life stories; some will have you laughing out loud, some are gut-wrenchingly painful to read, some will leave you blushing and a little heated, but all are the same in the fact that they are authentic and beautiful.”
