Women's Writing Circle

The Women's Writing Circle (WWC) uses expressive writing in a sacred circle as a way for women to deepen their understanding of themselves and others and to share written stories that honor and support the diverse voices of all women.

We provide a safe and nurturing place for discussing truths, sharing vulnerabilities, and bearing witness with compassion and gratitude. We encourage women to embrace their authenticity and become global organizers of change and peace through personal and social transformation, community, and escaping the oppression of silence through our words.

Led by our Writer-in-Residence, Jennifer Minotti, the Women's Writing Circle (WWC) encourages women, girls, and gender-expansive people to escape the oppression of silence through our words and voices. We write from a series of prompts as an entry point to explore emotions, themes, personal histories, shared truths, joy, grief, shame, and those things that matter most to us in our hearts. We then share and listen, inviting each participant to be courageous, vulnerable and compassionate truth-tellers and witnesses to others' authentic stories. This type of no-pressure, expressive writing process holds many benefits for the individual and the group. The WWC's are open to all ages, and absolutely no writing experience is necessary.

This year, the WWC's will raise funds for organizations that support diverse women's health and human rights.
