ABOUT WOMEN WHO WRITE
Women Who Write, Inc. began in June 1988 as a single writing group called Mothers Who Write. Today, we are a regional women writers' organization and nonprofit corporation with writing groups that meet throughout New Jersey.
· To assist women writers in every phase of the writing process – with critique groups, workshops, and discussions
· To bring the work of women writers into the community through readings and publications
· To provide encouragement, assistance, and a sense of community to women writers who might otherwise be working in isolation
Any woman who writes may join Women Who Write, Inc. Our members include writers of all literature. Some are award-winning professionals who publish regularly; others write mainly for pleasure and self-discovery. We support each writer in establishing and meeting personal objectives.
