Lean In with the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers

Join Us for this free, drop-in monthly gathering of women writers in any stage of their journey as writers.  Our group aims to:

  • Learn and discover new approaches to writing
  • Share our work, both with each other and in more public venues
  • Share our experiences and create community
  • Learn and/or share the business of writing – discipline, marketing, etc.
  • Learn how to create opportunities for ourselves
  • Have small, anchored groups evolve from the larger group to focus on specific work
  • Create smaller book groups and reading series
