Please join us as we broaden our circle of women to include our women friends, colleagues, and family members. Once each semester we invite other women to write with us, and to hear what we've been writing.
An evening of intention and intimacy; where else does this happen in my life? -Carolyn Brookbank
I am inspired to write by the courage that other women have in their writing. My first term in WWF(a) C, I wrote my best after Barbara Tonne read a piece about her father and the accident that changed her family forever. Because she could name this story, and bravely sing parts of it, I wanted to share a part of my story in words as compelling and beautiful. last term my best writing was inspired by Robyn Breiman's reading a series of pieces in response to a number of prompts we had both shared. In listening t Robyn, I realized I had missed opportunities to create beauty. I am sure I had good reasons, week after week, not to write. But they weren't as good as the work Robyn produced. Because of her reading, I knew I could share another piece of my own story in the group.
It is not a competitive thing, this group, I do not hear another's words and think. "I can do better." I hear others' words and feel an energy which flows as a benediction on the group. Each woman's act of bravery stimulates another writer. This energy is completely unpredictable, but as real as any other force in my writing.
The group also forms a receptacle for receiving words. So often I write of things I think of as unimportant. but I can bring those writings here, and there is a welcome for it. This is incredibly empowering.
- Sandra Grady
My great passion in this life is to write. I write in my daily journal and my dream journal. I write essays on my computer, letters to my daughter, e-mails to family and friends around the world. And for most of my life, I felt guilty taking the time away from my other responsibilities to write. by becoming a part of the writing community here at WWF (a) C I have found justification for putting my words onto paper. My efforts here are honored and respected; and I know that I am among many others who also struggle to find a place in their busy lives for their writing. Within the circle of our writing we share friendship and the honesty of our words. Here I feel an energy that assures me that I am truly alive when I write.
