Sharing Our Stories, Sharing Our Lives
“There’s power in allowing yourself to be known and heard, in owning your unique story, in using your authentic voice. And there’s grace in being willing to know and hear others. This, for me, is how we become.” —Michelle Obama
Real Women Write is an annual anthology of writing by SCN members, including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, showcasing the talent and creativity of our own writing women. It is currently published each December in both print and digital formats, and is available through Amazon. Check out our 2019 issue here.
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. The theme for our 2020 issue is Living on COVID Time. We want to explore the heights and depths of this pandemic period, from isolation to heroism, from racism to generosity, and everything in between. We hope our authors will use writing’s healing power to voice what might otherwise go unexpressed.
We are open for entries July 1 – September 15, and up to three entries may be submitted, by SCN members only. There is no entry fee, but length is limited to 1400 words for prose, or 48 lines for poetry.
Members have access to the entire archive of our anthologies.
P.S. If you’re not an SCN member, it’s easy to join.
