Crystal Wilkinson 



"Lyrical, beautiful storytelling." 
~Attendee at reading

Deep appreciation to author Crystal Wilkinson for coming to WWf(a)C on April 13 and 14. She presented a reading and discussion of her work  Friday evening, came to the Reading Like a Writer class  Friday morning, and facilitated a workshop on Dialogue  on Saturday.  
 
Attendees at each of these events were taken with Crystal's skillfully crafted writing, straight from the heart, and her insightful and inspired teaching. All came away with many ideas and tools to apply to their own writing.
Finding Your
Satirical Voice

Two-Day Workshop:
May 10th, 6:30-9:30pm
May 12th, 1-4pm

In an outrageous world, there is much to be outraged about. You have a great deal on your mind and much to say. But if you want people to hear you, the best way to do it is to make them laugh!

Scott Levy teaches for the Writing Program at the famed Second City Training Center.

Phebe Beiser wants her support to last. Women Writing for (a) Change has meant so much to Phebe over the years, that she wants to do everything possible to help this community of writing circles flourish long into the future. Phebe's devotion for WWf(a)C led to naming the organization as a beneficiary of her retirement plan.
 
"I believe it is the right thing to do, to give back. This organization has given so much to me. Donating after I am gone is one small (and easy!) way to help WWf(a)C continue to thrive."
 
Women Writing for (a) Change has been a part of Phebe's life for many years. Her first writing circle was in 2004, and in 2006 she completed the Feminist Leadership Academy under Mary Pierce Brosmer. Phebe now facilitates the Thursday Morning Core Class, to the delight of a loyal group of writers.
 
It is important to Phebe that others continue to have these opportunities and experiences for years to come. " Not only is it a place to share writing, WWf(a)C is truly a wonderful community. I have found great friends here."
 
" I would ask that you look within and consider all the gifts you have received from WWf(a)C. Giving any way you can (and in any amount) really helps the organization not only continue, but grow! You don't have to be rich to give. Every little bit helps."
 
Phebe, a deep and heartfelt thank you from all at WWf(a)C. We are grateful for your generosity and dedication!
Gratitude To Janie Baer



Since 2016 Janie has served on the WWf(a)C staff as Executive Assistant to Diane Debevec,  (and so much more!) . With tremendous gratitude and appreciation for her time and dedication, we are sad to announce that Janie has retired from that position.

The good news for us all is that we are not saying good-bye! Janie will continue in her role as facilitator for several girls classes and the Girls Half-day Summer Camp.  For the time being, Janie's job will be absorbed by other staff.  

Thank you, Janie!
