This group is meant to bring together dedicated and serious female identified writers who value voice, write as a form of artistic expression and are working on getting published.

If you are interested in\already engaged in entrepreneurial ventures around writing,I'd love to talk about this as well. However, this is NOT A REQUIREMENT to be in this group!

I am hoping to share work, organize readings and events, and create a community of female writers.

I am holding these events at my house, so please don't share my address with others. This is a female-identified space only. This is important to me.

If you are allergic to cats, please let me know. I have THREE. I will make other arrangements if necessary.
