This free class is dedicated to the Women of Bethany Hall, Roanoke, who were participants in early group workshops and who shared their joys and grief and truths.

And this website is dedicated to future women writers: may you tell yourself stories that empower your dignity and your truths.


This website was supported by a number of groups and individuals and we would like to thank them all:  the students at Roanoke College who helped compose some of these exercises, especially Steph and Hannah, Jonathan, Rebekah, and the Pathways Program at Roanoke College that gave us the time and support to practice the exercises at TrustHouse in Roanoke and at Bethany Hall.


Finally, I’d like to thank Hana who brought her great creative energy and talent to building this website—
