About Women Writing VT
In Burlington, VT since 2004, Women Writing VT supports the authentic experience of women who honor themselves through creative writing. We are a diverse community of women creating change in ourselves and our worlds one truth, one voice at a time. Participants enhance expressive skills, strengthen their voices, deepen themselves as women and as writers for positive change in all spheres of life. Creative writing in all genres is our shared vehicle.
Our work stands on the shoulders of many, including Women Writing for (a) Change, the writings of Parker Palmer, the conscious feminine. We believe that writing within and for community revises our lives toward the consciousness necessary to stop destroying one another and our planet. Individual change transforms community, creating connections necessary for healing our culture. Won’t you join us in writing the creative change you want to be in the world?
