About Women Writing for Change
Women Writing for a Change was founded by Mary Pierce Brosmer in 1991. A former English teacher and practicing poet, Mary gathered a group of fifteen women for a weekly writing class, using circle practices, establishing confidentiality, and creating a safe space for honest feedback. Growth has been organic, coming from within the lives of the founder, staff, faculty members, and the countless women, men and girls who have attended classes.
People ages 9-95 attend core semester classes, weekend writing retreats, mini-series sessions, Saturday theme classes, and a variety of community events. Participants experience the inspiration and safety created by expert teacher-facilitators, and a vibrant, hospitable container for evoking what is theirs to tell.
