From Laura Ingalls and Alicia Florrick to Elizabeth II: literary and historical women as role models

The more time I spend reading, writing, volunteering at the library, and exploring what I want to do with my life, the more I’ve learned that what I read and who I read about has influenced who I am and who I want to be. While I love Dickens, Steinbeck, Fitzgerald, and Shakespeare, my…

Poem:Zora Neale Hurston Empowers Women in Stories

Zora, Zora, My Zora 

 

I have been in sorrow’s kitchen and licked out all the pots. Then I have stood on the peaky mountain wrapped in rainbows with a harp and a sword in my hands.” – Zora Neale Hurston

 

She’s genius of literary pen wrapped in metaphors

strung in stories & etched in stone legacy.

 

She gripped her pen creating clusters of characters

whose voices tumble through pistol-loaded sagas of…

Freedom

I was introduced to the existence of she writes last August – and I have since then, wished to write something here. Yes, to sow seeds for possible germination into a ‘platform’, but also to hear and to be heard. Like in the lunch sessions sneaking out from our corporate conferences – where we talk of our busy lives and emotional outbreaks at work, or in the community forums – where I lurk in the comfort of my anonymity reading through posts that console me in my struggling moments with…

[SWP: BEHIND THE BOOK] A penance. A blessing. A deadline.

In anticipation of writing this blog post for BEHIND THE BOOK, I immediately sat down and wrote a whole craft essay instead. More of a memoir, actually. About waitressing. It really did apply, at least to much of this process. I wrote about being “in the weeds,” an old restaurant workers’ term for being too busy to…

Being a woman

Do you repent?
Yes I do
Why?
Because I am a woman.
You repent for being a woman?
I repent for being born a woman
In a society
Where love and trust
Are obsolete words.
Where desires find ventilation
In form of rape
Where…

Writing Motherhood: Driving with teens

 



 

Catherine driving Driving Mother

by Suzi Banks Baum

One tangle of mothering teens is this:

You emerge from sleep. You hear your teen making a smoothie. She is grinding what sounds to be at least two cement blocks lugged from the garage at a pre-dawn hour and placed without liquid in the Vitamix. You decide that getting up is better than pretending to sleep. Recalling an… Continue

"Listen To Your Mother" Portland

I continue to be fascinated by how many different directions my writing takes me. It's especially gratifying when the same piece of writing benefits a worthwhile cause. 

Here's the scoop: (Via my blog at www.thesecondhalfonline.com

One of the many things I am grateful for at this point in life is that I haven’t lost my capacity to still get reeeeeeeally excited about different things … like participating in a show that…
