Winter 2019 Write on Women!

Women have been the keepers of stories throughout the centuries. We are powerful storytellers. But sometimes, our voices get lost or stories passed down from generation to generation, forgotten. Stories that have shaped us and defined us, sometimes are suppressed and stay locked away.
Come release your voice and learn to write your story! This two-hour six-week class will help shape and create a moment of impact or memory you would like to release from your soul. Spend six weeks with Deborah Nowinski, an award-winning author or the Barbara Jordan Award for Your Role in Inclusion Theatre and playwright as well.
