Educator/filmmaker duo Cindy Parrish and Meg Agnew screened their film HEROIC GIRLZ at Simon’s Rock as part of this year’s Festival of Women Writers.  The film, starring four 11-year-old girls including Cindy’s daughter Emma Parrish Post, invites viewers to imagine the early lives of famous historical women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Amelia Earhart.

After the screening, Meg and Cindy led the audience in several writing exercises designed to stimulate the imagination and help writers tap back into the feistiness of their pre-adolescent selves.  A lively time was had by all!
