Women Who Write is pleased to offer programs throughout the year that help to nurture, encourage and educate our members while fostering a sense of community beyond our individual critique groups. Every year we have a Winter Gathering to celebrate the season and each other while enjoying delicious cuisine. At the launch of Goldfinch, our annual literary journal, we provide an opportunity for each selected author to read her published piece as well as an open mic for everyone who attends the event. In addition, we offer programs in prose, poetry and screenwriting throughout the year by accomplished industry professionals.

It is a wonderful opportunity to bone up on your presentation skills and to see what listeners respond to. Readers will be given up to 4 minutes to read their works, and we can schedule between 25 and 30 readers, and accommodate more than 50 listeners.
Oh, and let's not forget, we do this while enjoying coffees, teas, and wonderful baked goods.
All attendees are eligible for one the many gifts we give away at end of our events, this may include books, gift cards, and gift baskets donated by local businesses.
Whether you're a listener or a reader, to offset expenses we ask that members of Women Who Write pay $15, and non-members pay $20.
