She Writes founders Kamy Wicoff and Deborah Siegel on the 8 things they believe:

ONE. We believe that writing is life and world-changing for women.
TWO. We believe that community has the power to nurture and sustain creativity.
THREE. We believe in the psychology of abundance: we have everything to gain by sharing what we know, and everything to lose if we withhold our wisdom from one another.
FOUR. We believe that writing is a journey, and that publication is only one of its many meaningful destinations.
FIVE. We believe technology, employed thoughtfully, will empower and amplify the voices of women and girls who have not otherwise have been heard.
SIX. We believe in building a platform upon which all of us can stand.
SEVEN. We believe writing is only as good as the labor expended to produce it.
EIGHT. We believe that writers need not write alone.

Really appreciate the third belief:

We believe in the psychology of abundance: we have everything to gain by sharing what we know, and 

everything to lose if we withhold our wisdom from one another.  Thanks Kamy & Deborah!

OH Kamy and Deborah,

your ideas are overwhelming.  I feel privileged to be part of the SW group. Yes, it is a great and unusual platform upon which we all can stand and share to have the feel of togetherness. I come from the other side of the globe, where a lot of these ideas are very meaningful.

I would like to thank Heather Summerhayes, Anjuelle Floyd and Meg Waite Clayton for all their help and support.

Thanks for your encouragement and for inspiring me to remain true to my goal of establishing myself an accomplished writer. Have a happy, safe, healthy and prosperous New Year!
