Women’s Way of Writing
Do women have a different way of writing? If so, what is it? We are more than any one dimension of ourselves—more than our sex, our gender. But without honoring our nature as women, we are also less than whole. Writing draws from every part of us—emotion, intellect, body, and our creative and healing spirits. We’ll avoid stereotypes by focusing on our particular life experiences. And we’ll explore how women’s journeys may differ from the usual idea of the hero’s journey.
