We believe every womxn* deserves room to write.

Whether you are experienced or not, call yourself a writer or not, if there are words inside waiting to make it to the page or screen, you deserve room to write.

No matter what kind of writing you do, or wish you had time to do–journaling, essays, stories, memoir, poetry, blogging–you deserve room to write and a nonjudgmental, supportive community of writers.

We believe that writing has the power to heal and transform.

We believe that creating a community of writing practice offers both the structure and freedom to write what we are called to write in the way we are called to write it–whether we are writing for our eyes only or with the intent of sharing, whether we are writing to heal, to hone our craft, or for the pure joy of words and their possibilities.

We believe in the synergy of a circle of womxn--that we bring out the strength and courage and vulnerability in each other, and this can only improve our writing.

We believe that womxn writing in community is a doorway: we give each other permission to speak freely, to feel our feelings fully, to open to possibilities.

*We welcome womxn and non-binary writers of all experience levels.

Our Goals:

Create a safe, sacred space to write with other womxn. 

Create a community that offers support and encouragement for making room in our lives to write.

Offer opportunities for embodiment to help us stay present and allow our senses to inform our writing.

Offer opportunities to write that inspire reflection, creativity, and exploration of the craft of writing.

We started this because we were writers with lives that made it hard to carve out head space, heart space and desk space to write. We missed our craft. We missed the company of womxn discovering their own writing voices. So, we decided to make Room to Write.

Our well-loved original open-armed, nonjudgmental, donation-based virtual writing group meets weekly on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT (UTC -5). Womxn and non-binary writers of all experience levels are welcome. Join the Facebook group or contact us for the link to join.

We believe our truest, most engaging writing happens when we are deeply connected with our bodies and senses.

Our Room to Write workshops incorporate movement and/or meditation, writing with prompts and sometimes without, and the opportunity to share your words and your reflections aloud or quietly in your own mind and heart.


Pay attention.

Be astonished.

Write about it.
