Writing Our Path was a women’s writing project I started with others in my writing community. It included one-on-one tutoring in writing for women who wanted to write their stories of survival and hope for the first time and a blog where they shared their stories. We are no longer accepting submissions at this time, but you can visit the blog to see a small representation of what we were doing. The stories posted here were written by women from many different walks of life, professions, and places. Just as every woman’s journey is unique, the stories they wrote were on a range of topics from surviving domestic violence to getting an education to recovering from alcoholism. I developed this idea believing that no matter what each woman has gone through she can offer others courage, hope, and empowerment and also experience her own healing in the telling of her story.
