The Birth of Feminine Collective:

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

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. In addition to producing Feminine Collective, Julie continues to act, model and write for other publications/media.

The Raw & Unfiltered Anthology VOL 1:

In 2015, Feminine Collective published the first anthology of selected works from writers on the magazine. The anthology included 99 essays, poems, and prose from 38 contributors.

“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

Feminine Collective Media:

In 2016, Feminine Collective became an indie publisher of selected books written by their authors and other writers.

A limited number of books are exclusively published each year.

“The power of empathy embodies the storytelling on these pages. We find a home, a place of acknowledgment on how we feel, think, live.”―Rachel Hunter

 “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.”

“I remain a regular contributor over at Twisted Sister (a place for feminist horror and dark fantasy) and love the work in Feminine Collective – you are featuring some truly great pieces and voices. “

“This collection of musings, inspiration, frustration, and femininity is compelling. It begs the reader to empathize, not to agree but to feel and hear. To embrace the feminine experience rather than degrade it. A wonderful glimpse into some fascinating experiences. Bravo.”

Five star all the way!!”

“It isn’t easy to tell some stories. The stories in this collection sing beautifully together as a chorus. Experiences brought together in one place to be read and felt.

I love the Feminine Collective.”
