Women Writers Accountability Group (WWAG)

Women Writers Accountability Group (WWAG) is a new program to encourage women writers at all levels and in all genres.

Four 10-week sessions take place Tuesday evenings at 7 PM (via Zoom currently) where women writers and aspiring writers gather for informal conversation about writing projects and to set goals for the duration of the session.

Arts at the Palace’s executive director, Elizabeth Douglas, a multi-genre writer and published author, serves as the program director. WWAG also features guest professional writers to offer a different point of view on creating space and time for writing.

WWAG is not a writing education program but is designed as a supportive community to help women reach their own goals and establish a writing practice. Participants receive a program tote bag, notebook, pens, and a copy of the book Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within by Natalie Goldberg.

At the end of the year, there will be a reception at the Palace Theater with an optional presentation opportunity for participants from any of the 10-week sessions to read excerpts of their work to friends, family, and community members.

WWAG is open to women 18 years old+ and is free of charge. If you have the means, please consider making a donation to Arts at the Palace’s 2020-2021 programs.

WWAG is made possible by a New ERA Women Writers Program Grant from the Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation.
