Devoting a Morning to Ourselves

Life is busy with many activities and demands on our time as women.  Can you allow yourself the luxury of  committing a morning to yourself and your writing?

I am convinced that women are told it is selfish to devote time to their own passionate pursuits.  It is important that women have role models.  Together, we can be each other's role models in our commitment and devotion to saying "my story matters."

This is what our Women's Writing Circle is all about.  Easing the solitary life of the writer, validating and acknowledging each other in a supportive and intimate setting . As Joanna Russ writes in How to Suppress Women's Writing: "Without models, it's hard to work; without a context, difficult to evaluate; without peers, nearly impossible to speak."

All genres are welcome in the Circle, as are both published and unpublished writers. Our group is diverse and lively. Please join us the second Saturday of every month for coffee and tea and a love of writing. For additional information and questions, please email me at sgweidener@comcast.net
