Women Write the Rockies Presents The Waves: A Feminist Retrospective: a poetry and fiction reading at Wolverine Farm Letterpress and Publick House.
Say the word feminist in the 21st Century and it becomes a flashpoint. The controversy continues even today when it comes to discussing equal rights for women. Women Write the Rockies presents The Waves: A Feminist Retrospective at Wolverine Farm Letterpress and Publick House at 316 Willow Street Fort Collins on Saturday January 16 from 7-9PM. This will be the first in a series of readings and writing workshops by members of Women Write the Rockies at Wolverine Letterpress and Publick House.
The feminist movement came in waves from the first wave of the 19th Century, the second wave of the 70’s to the third wave of current times. These writers will celebrate equal rights, reproductive rights, ecofeminism, and other aspects of the feminist, female, and feminine realm. Hear fiction and poetry by Veronica Patterson, Lisa Zimmerman, Jackie St. Joan, Rebecca Snow, Teow Lim Goh and Kathleen Willard. A reception and book signing will follow the reading.
Women Write the Rockies is also offering Writing Memorable Women, a free fiction writing workshop by member Rebecca Snow, author of Glassmusic at Wolverine Letterpress on Saturday January 16 from 2-4.
Workshop participants will create unforgettable female characters and discuss strategies to bring them to life on the page, no matter what their personality, point of view, or situation. After reading and discussing a short scene by Marilynne Robinson, writers will apply techniques to write our own memorable women and share our creations.
Women Write the Rockies is a group of literary women writing in the shadow of the Rockies: a community of like-minded women sharing news, readings, publications, and reviews.
