“I am hungry for the rich broth, / I want to be fed: / woman secrets / kitchen talk.”
—Mary Pierce Brosmer, founder of Women Writing for (a) Change

What We’ve Been Up to Lately
National Poetry Month Festivities Sparkle!
With the pandemic lifting, we’ve enjoyed many opportunities to meet in person this month, including the St. Aug PoetFest, Blooms and Galore, and the Sunshine State Book Festival last Saturday, and the First Coast Poetry Showcase on Sunday. Our high school interns really had the opportunity to shine at the PoetFest, thanks to the efforts of Ruth VanAlstine and Sharon Scholl, and intern Kaysyn Jones won an award for her poetry! This month also was special because we launched our first public high school circle called CURRENTS, and announced our first Author Showcase [for Women Authors], on the calendar for Saturday, May 14. Hope to see you there for this inaugural event!
