“You have to get old. Don’t cry, don’t clasp your hands in prayer, don’t rebel, you have to get old. Repeat the words to yourself, not as a howl of despair but as the boarding call to a necessary departure.” – Colette
We are women writers of a certain age, who grew up in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Perhaps age and experience give us the courage to express things we kept under wraps when we were younger. Certainly our writing skills improve with time, as does the desire to say the unsaid or unsayable. No more euphemisms! Come and hear a group of older women writers share their passions and what they know. There will be a discussion and Q&A afterward. Join the dialogue!
Novelist, playwright, and poet Sonia Pilcer began publishing novels in her twenties. She has taught for many years at the Writers Voice in Manhattan and at Berkshire Community College.
