Real Women Write

Sharing Our Stories, Sharing Our Lives

"What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open."
—Muriel Rukeyser

Real Women Write is an annual anthology of writing by SCN members, including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. It appears each January in both print and online media formats, showcasing the talent and creativity of our own writing women.

Story Circle Network values every woman's story, and in Real Women Write we publish writing about both the individual life in all its uniqueness, and a woman's life as it's understood by all women.

Up to three entries may be submitted, from SCN members only. There is no entry fee, and no required theme or subject, but word count is limited to 1000 words for prose, or 40 lines for poetry.

Members may read this year's anthology online. Go to the Members Only site and click on "Real Women Write Anthology" under the Writing Resources tab. To submit your writing, see our call for submissions.

P.S. If you're not an SCN member, it's easy to join.
