Writing Women’s Lives

Introductory/Intermediate | What’s your story—as a daughter, mother, lover, sister, wife, or single woman? Although these experiences are important, women have not always had the means to tell their stories. Whether silenced, shamed, or overlooked, women writers throughout history have sought creative ways to get their stories heard. Come learn about these challenging and empowering histories and develop your own unique voice through writing exercises aimed to help you explore your own life story—and how you want to tell it.
