We're pleased to share the news that LM contributor Marilyn Bousquin is offering an interactive workshop through Writing Women's Lives. The free workshop, which will take place on October 7th, is called Writing Our Grandmothers, Discovering Ourselves: Women, Silence, and Voice. Marilyn tells us: "For women writers voice is a craft issue AND an identity issue that cannot be separated from a cultural history of silencing that undermines a woman’s sense of self. Once you become aware of how silencing operates, you will free your voice, claim your truth, and write your story with confidence, craft, and consciousness." These issues resonate with us as mama writers as well as "granddaughter" writers. To register for the workshop, click here.
