Are you a compelling single woman between ages 25 and 60? Want to honor Women’s History Month by sharing some of your life stories and lessons learned?

You may be able to take part in the upcoming documentary series Independent Spirit:  Successful Women in America Speak Out on the Joys and Pains of Modern Day Single Life.

The docuseries is tentatively in the works now, inspired by Nika Beamon’s book  I Didn’t Work This Hard Just to Get Married: Successful Single Black Women Speak Out.

The producers hope to hear from single women of *all* enthicities: Black, Asian, Latina, White, whatever! If you want to tell them what it’s like being a single woman [legally single or socially single], please contact Nika Beamon at denali17@optonline.net, and please include a .jpg photo and a bio, which are needed for the treatment package going to the executive producer.

Can you please clarify what kind of single you are looking for? Legally single or not in any kind of romantic relationship?

Great question–I’d been assuming it was “not in a romantic relationship” type of thing (or some variation thereof), but it would be good if the producers also addressed the issue of legally v. socially single too. I’m not sure whether they are going to. I would imagine you could email Nika and ask her this very valid question.

Update: They are looking for women who are *either* socially OR legally single.

Thanks for the info! I am glad to hear this. I definitely think it would be interesting to hear from women who are partnered but not getting married for whatever reasons.
