What we're about

Women Writing for (a) Change, Jacksonville, is a new writing community for Jacksonville writers. We are here for one purpose: To nurture and celebrate the individual voice by facilitating supportive writing circles and by encouraging people to craft more conscious lives through the art of writing and the practices of community. Creative writing in all forms is honored at WWf(a)C: journaling, fiction, poetry, prose, and collage. We offer core writing classes on a semester basis, and we also offer one-day workshops and longer retreats. You don’t have to be an experienced writer to join the circle, although many experienced writers have benefitted from it. All are invited. WWf(a)C Jacksonville is an affiliate site of Women Writing for (a) Change in Cincinnati. Since 1991, WWf(a)C has evolved into a powerful and empowering community of women and girls telling our stories. We are diverse community of women creating change in ourselves and our worlds one truth, one voice at a time.

Anthology Series: Roots and Branches of Women Writing

Needs a location


Join us for this new series featuring the artists and writers of our gorgeous anthology, (a) river rising!

Each week we will explore different artists and writers from our annual anthology, (a) river rising. We will write as inspired by the words and art, and share our stories together.

This is all part of our overall plan to create a stronger community through our Anthology: a way of connecting deeply over our words and our art—and this time, by doing it virtually, we can include folks from all of the country—even over the world!

This series facilitated virtually on the Zoom platform by faculty member Jennifer Wolfe.

Note: Pre-buy your personal copy of the Anthology at the San Marco Bookstore; they will be carrying this book throughout the year. Support local bookstores! Or you can pick it up onsite at one of our events here in Riverside: 1610 Osceola Street, Jacksonville, FL 32204. Or, order on our Etsy site and have it shipped directly to you!
