& Online Writer's Groups All Year
Some of us are published authors; some of us are just starting out. Some are old; some are young. All of us are writers – and we have stories to tell. We come together to share our work and receive thoughtful and respectful feedback; we are constantly amazed by our fellow writers as they share
We meet at Lifebridge Sanctuary, a magical, secluded, serene place in the midst of 95 pristine acres of forestland in the Catskills. A picture is worth a thousand words: a video is worth even more! Check out this video tour of the grounds, the buildings, the rooms; there’s no place like it! Join our online
I’m not big on groups. And I’m terrible at small talk. But I LOVED spending a weekend with WAW. (more…)
Women at Woodstock is more than an event, it’s a treasure. It’s powerful and empowering to be with women who love, want, share, think, do, care, motivate, inspire, hug, cry, write, read, and most importantly BE with and for each other. It’s worth being part of for any reason.
It was a phenomenal experience, hearing the stories of triumph, and seeing the many faces of success was so inspiring!

Nobody is more amazed than I at my being actually able to write a novel. And it all came down as per the goal that you transcribed for me a couple of years ago on that big piece of presentation paper at Women at Woodstock: “Write one word, then wait for the next.” (more…)
I look at WAW as a group of wise women, women who have left behind the BS of false female competition. Instead we have learned to embrace each other by lifting each other up.
I met some of the most brilliant and loving women at WAW. We’ve kept in touch, inspired, supported and loved each other ever since.

I do not want to write this email. I do not. I’ve put it off for nearly a year. It’s just too sad. Too wrong. Too unfair. I’ll just remember: I remember when I first met Mary Ellen. She came to Women At Woodstock for the first time back in 2013. I remember her strong presence; a mix of confidence and quiet. And I remember her vulnerability.
