Women Writing Birmingham, LLC, regularly offers writing classes for women in experientially designed small groups. Sessions empower women individually and collectively while developing their writing voices. A woman can expect to write, share writing, and receive and offer requested feedback. Discussion on common topics and creative process concerns are regular occurrences. Writing is done in class as well as outside of class time. Writing projects and plans vary by writer as well level of experience. All are invited to participate equally. Providing safe and confidential space in community are key values of the school.
