Home » History


Women Writing for (a) Change was founded in 1991 by Mary Pierce Brosmer, a practicing poet and former English teacher.  She developed Women Writing for (a) Change to encourage women to find their voices, speak their truths and tell their stories in a world in which they were often silenced.  Mary’s first writing circle was a weekly writing class, using circle practices that are still used, but today a diverse group sits in the circle.  Women Writing for (a) Change still offers ‘core’ classes, weekly writing circles, that are excellent for people to exercise their writing muscles, find their voice, and be supported in their writing.  Outside of the core classes, Women Writing for (a) Change also offers a range of programming, such as SoulCollage.  Be sure to check our class offerings for the full schedule of amazing opportunities.
