[SWP: Behind the Book] American Family by Catherine Marshall-Smith

Posted by Catherine Marshall-Smith on February 6, 2017 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

            I didn’t write American Family; it burst from my chest like the alien in the movie by the same name starring Sigourney Weaver. It was also produced by the clash of politics, law and faith that swirled around LGBTQ rights at the beginning of the millennium.

            American Family began writing itself years before I even knew I was going to write it. When I try to figure out when my novel began, a series of headlines and snippets of conversations flash through my mind. I remember being told a story by a conservative Christian woman about another woman who was awarded custody of her own daughter after a divorce and was raising the girl with her lesbian partner.  The woman relating the story added, “I’m sorry, I have a problem with that.” She later had two signs in her yard supporting Proposition 22, which temporarily put into California law in 2000 that, “marriage was only lawful between a man and a woman.” During the…

Why She Writes University?

Posted by Brooke Warner on February 12, 2017 at 8:36am 0 Comments

Last year, here at SheWrites.com, the team decided we wanted to launch She Writes University. We looked around at our amazing members and realized what a huge talent pool we had to draw from. We also know how many She Writers want information about how to get published, and we have access to the kinds of agents and editors who are helpful, who want aspiring authors to succeed.

Onboarding the women we have lined up for She Writes University has been a huge coup for us, and also a glimpse at what’s to come. We want She Writes University to be a service for you, our community, and we welcome ideas for courses, teacher suggestions, and any and all ideas for improvement.

So check out this amazing roster of women and their classes:

[THE WRITER'S LIFE] My Book

Posted by Cindy Eastman on February 2, 2017 at 9:23am 0 Comments

My book. We all use that phrase: I’ll get to the (laundry, dishes, litter box, job search) just as soon as I finish my book.

 

My book. It doesn’t matter whose actual book it is--Patricia Cornwell, Dan Brown, Mark Twain, Jane Austen--once we pick it up, peek inside at a random page and inhale deeply as we clutch it in our hands, it becomes ours. Our next “Once upon a time…”(1) New bestsellers, old favorites…it doesn’t matter. Browsing through the bookstore is exhilarating; exploring the stacks at the…
