Motherhood & Words

I’m over at The Red Dress Club again today. I’ve provided their weekly memoir prompt. Check it out and feel free to link to your response on Tuesday. I’m going to read as many responses as I can.

Happy writing!

I have been teaching creative writing for almost twenty years. Reading about other women’s lives and experiences has expanded my world. To be able to walk in someone else’s shoes, whether it’s for a moment or an hour or a few days, is an incredible gift, providing me with insight into the human experience. It takes courage to write your truths, especially if it doesn’t seem as though anyone cares, as though anyone is listening. Let me tell you: your stories matter, I’m listening, and I’m here to help you find the heart of those truths, to get them down on the page, to craft them, and to send them out into the world. Together, we will change the world, one story at a time.

    hi Kate! So good to see you there! I've heard of the site but today was the first time I visited. I wish I had done so sooner! I will be traveling next week but would love to link up something if I can…
