“I return to the writing workshops provided by HerStories over and over. They are always well-structured, engaging, and challenging enough that I feel like I’m learning something new but also achieving success. This was possibly my favorite one, with interesting and informative mini-lessons and consistent writing sprints.”

A HerStories Critique Group

If you have a writing piece ready for more rigorous and focused critique, join our critique group.


“This workshop gave me the structure and companionship to step back into writing and to value what I write. It also gave me the opportunity to enjoy many other pieces of writing from women similar to me. It was a marvellous adventure with fellow travellers, where writing has otherwise felt too solitary in this physically-distanced time, and I am so grateful.”

What community members have said...

"I loved the intimate and supportive nature of this class and the bravery demonstrated by my fellow participant writers. Jessica and Stephanie’s prompts challenged me creatively and also provided a space for inner reflection and personal healing. A profoundly transformative experience.”
"This workshop gave me a purpose and a direction I desperately needed in order to return to my writing. I had blamed the pandemic and my overwhelming feelings for not writing in the last year. Turns out, I wasn't writing because I did not know where I wanted my writing to go.....I found the course to be manageable and fluid enough that I could get it in within my crazy, hectic schedule. I found Stephanie and Jessica to be, once again, knowledgeable, encouraging, and genuine. Loved this."
"This extraordinary writing group allowed me to stretch and grow as a writer during the COVID-19 crisis, an incredibly challenging time for me, personally, and the world abound. Writing in the company of a diverse collection of women from all over the United States and abroad was one of the best experiences of my creative life.”
