Motherhood & Words

My wonderful blog friend, Meredith Winn, who is a talented writer and photographer, has just opened up her etsy shop! Check out her amazing work here.

And don’t forget to submit your “what no one told me” haiku here. Don’t be scared. It’s three lines. Come on.

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.

    I love Meredith's work — so haunting. And I think I submitted last year to the haiku contest, but for the life of me I'm stumped this year. Hopefully, I'll get it together and figure something out!
