Sharing Our Stories
“I’d always known storytelling was important to me, but I’ve finally realized that it’s central to who I am—it’s how I understand myself and the world, how I learn, how I pass on what I know. I feel that I know myself in a new and deeper way—that I have knowledge I can use to bring deeper meaning to the various parts of my life.”
— Sherry Wachter
Read Our Quarterly Journal
The Story Circle Journal is a quarterly members-only newsletter, published in March, June, September, and December. It is written by and for women with stories to tell and designed to encourage readers to become writers, guide women to set down their true stories, support women’s creativity, and make possible the sharing of women’s lives. Each issue of the Journal includes ideas for writing chapters of your life’s story, reviews of helpful books, readers’ writings, news about SCN activities, and a calendar of coming events. Read a sample issue.
Read Our Anthology
Real Women Write is an annual anthology by SCN members showcasing the talent and creativity of our own writing women. SCN 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 is understood by all women.
The selections in the 2020 volume, Living on Covid Time, capture moments as COVID-19 moved from rumor to life-altering reality, and together they form a small chapter in a humanity-sized story.
Growing/Older, the 2019 volume, contains writings in response to the profoundly significant experience of growth that comes to us with the passing of time.
Read Our Books
We invite you to listen to the many voices of our membership as they explore their lives and world through writing and sharing. We hope that by sharing our stories, we bring insight to each other’s lives. It is by sharing that we become stronger and more in tune with ourselves. We come from all walks of life to beckon our creativity and weave our stories.
