Motherhood & Words

For the past couple of years, I’ve been honored to have my annual Motherhood & Words reading be recorded as a Mom Enough podcast.  If you missed the 6th Annual Motherhood & Words Reading at the Loft Literary Center in October, you can listen here.  Reading with me were award-winning authors Debra Gwartney and Amie Klempnauer Miller. Check it out! Thank you, Marti and Erin for making this podcast possible again!

Also, I have a post over on the Loft’s Writer’s Block. You can read that here.

Happy listening and reading!

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.

    This was fabulous. I rarely listen to things online, but so glad I did. Looking forward to your memoir coming out!
