Women with Wings: An Anthology from Women Writing for (A) Change-Bloomington
"Women with Wings" is a unique collection of more than 50 contributors and 75 selections of poetry, essay, and short fiction. Topics range from quilting to great blue herons to first bras and toothbrushes to a mother's really orange hair. The contributions to this volume are divided into eight sections, roughly corresponding to a woman's life from birth to death. Everyone has a story to tell. WWf(a)C-Bloomington exists to help nurture those stories in whatever forms they take. We hope you enjoy reading those stories in these pages.

An anthology written by 13 writers who have Down syndrome. They participated in a writing class with Mary Ann Jansen, OSU, one of the faculty members of WWFC. Proceeds from the book benefit Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati and Women Writing for a Change.
Finding our Voices
In this anthology, 30 young women from pre-teens through late-teens expressed their thoughts and feelings on what it means to discover their voices. The poems were collected during Young Women Writing for a Change classes held from 2000-2008. Referring to this book, one of the facilitators writes: "What you have in your hands is a collection of texts, but it is also a glimpse into this circle of remarkable young writers, who write, listen, create, and support one another in finding their voices." Cincinnati-based ArtsWave and the Ohio Arts Council supported the classes. Proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit the outreach programs of Women Writing for a Change.
