Writing About the Women in Your Family

Who are the women in your family? What stories need to be told? How have these women helped you claim your place in the world, or what secrets might be holding you back? We’ll explore the roles of these women in our lives and how they’ve shaped us by generating micro narratives of 300 words or less. We'll consider how pieces may be submitted individually or organized as part of a chapbook, memoir, or more extensive body of work.
