Motherhood & Words

upcoming classes

There is still room in my summer online Mother Words class! Don’t be shy. For more information, click here or e-mail me at katehopper[at]

I’ll also be teaching a one-day workshop on July 11th from 9 am – 1 pm at the Loft Literary Center called Writing Parenthood. If you’ve wanted to take Mother Words, but haven’t been able to manage a 12-week class, this is your chance for a crash course. To register, click here. I’d love to meet some of you face-to-face!

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.
