Writing Our Grandmothers, Discovering Ourselves: Women, Silence, and Voice



Tuesday, October 7,  7pm EST

For women writers voice is a craft issue AND an identity issue that cannot be separated from a cultural history of silencing that undermines a woman’s sense of self.


Once you become aware of how silencing operates, you will free your voice, claim your truth, and write your story with confidence, craft, and consciousness.


It’s all about seeing the truth of who you are as a female in your writing and in your life.


In this FREE interactive writing workshop you will:

  • Write beneath silence to discover who you are in relation to your literal and literary grandmothers.
  • Understand the integral relationship between your development as a female and your voice.
  • Claim your story as worthy of literature AND realize that your story has the power to shift the consciousness of the culture.
  • Understand why your core subject is the soul of your voice and how your voice is the soul of your writing. (Hint: your voice is WHO YOU ARE.)


You will come away from the workshop with words on the page that draw on history, memory, imagination, and your own intuitive knowing to free your voice and awaken your deeper truth.


Grab a notebook and a pen and join a community of women writers who are done with silence!



And don’t worry if you can’t make it live, we will send you a recording.

Thank you for including me in the Writing Our Grandmothers, Discovering Ourselves: Women, Silence, & Voice workshop. I so enjoyed meeting other writers, listening to the thought-provoking information, and most importantly, sharing our words and the meanings behind them with each other. There are a few things that stuck with me most after that night, and perhaps the most important to me is the fact that, we, as women, dismiss our “subjects” as not important. Since my daughter Adalyn was born, motherhood has been a theme through my writing but I’ve never felt it quite “legit.” You allowed me to not only accept that motherhood is a huge part of my voice, but also to embrace that fact. Thank you for that. A few other things I jotted down at your workshop that left an impression on me: “Voice is the fingerprint of who you are,” “Stories have souls,” and “Tears are holy.” Thanks for getting my writing wheels turning again!
