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 the 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 mike for everyone who attends the event.  In addition, we offer programs in prose, poetry and screenwriting throughout the year by accomplished industry professionals.
