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 series of writing by SCN members, including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, 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.
The newest edition, volume 22 in the series, is Mothers and Mentors: The Art of Nurturing. Published in November 2023, it reflects on the varied ways that we give and receive nurturing, which is the human imperative to care for and encourage the growth or development of any life. Around the world, people suffer from a lack of nurture, yet we also feel the impact of mentors and nurturers in our lives, and often ourselves make the effort to help life thrive. This is a rich topic, and contributors have created a diverse and powerful collection of writing about it. Click here to find out more.
Submissions for the 2024 edition of Real Women Write are not yet open. Check back here in the spring for updated information.
