A new review of Women on Poetry has just appeared on the Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene with extensive references to specific essays. Note the fourth paragraph:
In Part I “Our Writing Life – A Collective Voice” the fifteen essays explore different aspects of our writing life. Several of the women tell the story of women’s poetry. In Sarah W. Bartlett’s “Women Writing for (a) Change: History, Philosophy, Programs” she states ‘We write to discover what we are feeling; to connect with our hearts; to work through difficult transitions; to express profound truths, share outrage, elicit support for a cause; to connect with other women; to create a legacy for our children.’ (p.52)
Those are the best kind of surprises! Why I write–because words charm me.
I like that – words charm me, too!!
I think that is great! Congratulations on having your words and wisdom appreciated and published! Very cool:-)
Thanks, Sara. Funny that this review came to my attention the same day #MNINB twitter chat was ‘why I write’ 🙂
Thanks much! It’s different, being part of an anthology. And fun to follow its progress!
