The market was a living thing. Its flesh was mounds of mangoes, sweet sop, naseberry, bananas. The steady calls of the higglers, its rapid heart. And those women with heads tied with colorful scarves, and legs splayed wide with skirts cascading between like waterfalls, were its bones.
Writing is what so many of us want to do. Finding the stories we want to tell, and then writing them is what our work together will be. Some of us are beginning. Some of us are continuing. Together we will all be looking for stories, good stories, working together to understand what good stories are, and where they come from.
Immerse yourself in the inspiration of Hobart’s mountain vistas and focus on your writing craft for a one-day, six-hour workshop in a small group setting with an award-winning poet.
This 2019 Calendar features the writing of the women who participated in the first Festival of Women Writers in 2013. A thoughtful holiday gift.
What a wonderful weekend we had! View highlights of our sixth great year of celebrating women writers.
“And that is why, every year, there is a season
of sadness, the hurricanes, in Great Water. They begin as
thunderstorms off the west coast of our world
They follow the path of the bones.”
