WAW 2017 Celebration Weekend October 12-15
WAW 2017 Writers Retreat October 19-22
I realize looking over my notes all the information that I took away from the event but my biggest take-away came from the life-long friends that I made. I would absolutely attend again next year.

I really am so very pleased to have been a part of this. I think women left more enlightened, more empowered and more sure of themselves and their futures. Who could ask for more.
I like when a presenter can just go with the flow if a conversation on topic occurs, as Suzanne Braun Levine did graciously. I also like that most presenters can put themselves into their presentations genuinely, like Linnea Duvall who was able to draw us in. We lived it with her.
You’ve done an amazing job producing these events. I will continue to recommend them to women I know. It was my pleasure to attend.
I LOVED this retreat. The sharing was intimate and honest and I felt great warmth and friendship from the women who attended. I also loved the honesty and openness of the speakers who, though highly accomplished, shared their vulnerabilities and concerns.
It was a phenomenal experience, hearing the stories of triumph, and seeing the many faces of success was so inspiring!
Lisa Levart said in her workshop, “Let the photographer see you.” I think we all let everyone see us that weekend, and it was amazing.
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.
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.
I’m not big on groups. And I’m terrible at small talk. But I LOVED spending a weekend with WAW, which felt honest and warm. I made some wonderful new friends and learned how to step up my social media game and take steps toward getting my pilot greenlighted. And bravely!
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.
by Linda Lowen It can be hard to think of yourself as a writer if you haven’t had anything published, earned a paycheck for your writing, or shared your work publicly. Even if you write daily, if you write in isolation it’s like the tree […]
At last year’s Women At Woodstock, Alice March gave a rousing speech at the Mastermind Session about how we need to take action – to talk less and do more – to mentor those who are coming up behind us. We need to do what […]
Diane Stark, a Women At Woodstock alum and an old friend from as far back as my New York City halcyon days, has been working on a film called “Tuesday Lunch.” I’ve written about it before. It’s a wonderful film about a loyal group of […]
