Women often have difficulty finding the time and space to write and share their voices and work in community with kindred spirits.

 

In this session, members of a long-standing women’s writing group – The Hudson Valley Women’s Writing Group –  will discuss their writings as well as writing group challenges and successful techniques for sharing the creative process within and outside their communities. They will also read from their anthology, An Apple In Her Hand.  

 

The Hudson Valley Women Writers (poetry, memoir and short fiction): These authors of An Apple In Her Hand come from varied backgrounds: including education, academia, social work, health care, and the law. 

 

In addition to being writers, all are feminists and political activists. Members include:

 

COLLEEN GERAGHTY,  KIT GOLDPAUGH, EILEEN HOWARD, TANA MILLER, MARY K. O’MELVENY, JAN ZLOTNIK SCHMIDT and KAPPA WAUGH.
