2016: A Milestone Year,
and a Call to Action
by Annie Donnellon

I t is hard to believe that this is the 25th year of Women Writing for (a) Change, and that I have been a proud member for the past two years!  From the moment I walked into the WWf(a)C building in August 2013, I felt welcomed, accepted and loved unconditionally.  As a blind woman who loves public singing and speaking, I have been known to be reserved and private about my inner feelings. The sharing of personal stories is a refreshing and humbling experience for me, as a listener and as a reader. I enjoy hearing the talents of all the writers and musicians I have met at Women Writing, and consider it an honor to share mine with the community.   Read More
