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. 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 21 in the series, is Seeing Through Their Eyes. It was published in November 2022, and addresses the topic of empathy, and how that human quality can teach us compassion in this time of growing challenges. Click here to find out more.
