Women's Writing Pilgrimage

This project, begun in 2010, led by Georgia Rhoades, Mary Anne Maier, Christine Dave, Jill Smith, Anne Wright, and Julie Kraus, is in its eighth year of focused monthly meetings for community women writers. Each year, WWP presents its work in a performance of writing, song, and movement, directed by Mary Anne Maier. For information about joining the group, email Julie Karaus at karausje@appstate.edu. We have explored themes of pilgrimage, healing, and challenge, producing writing for performance and community.

For more information about WWP and this year's workshop calendar, please see the calendar.
