Recap of DC She Writers Spring Meet Up with Poet Yael Flusberg on March 29 (videos & photos)


DC SW Spring Meet Up: Ananda, Nancy, Yael & Amy

The Digital Sisterhood Network sponsored the DC She Writers Spring Meet Up on March 29 at Teaism, a woman-owned tea cafe in Washington, DC.  The group shared six-word memoirs about feminism as ice breakers (they have been edited for this post).  See below.

  • feminism said women had better reality
  • feminist sheroes: bella. velvet. shirley. gloria.
  • feminine energy is coming into balance
  • feminism birthed an explosion of professionalism
  • what is feminism? an undercover playmate
  • younger women are losing ground now
  • feminism was suppose to change things
  • feminism is a gift from my mother

Poet Yael Flusberg was the featured guest.  She read excerpts from her new chapbook The Last of My Village and shared insights on writing her book with writers Nancy McCormick, Amy Melrose, and Ananda Leeke.  Watch the videos of Yael below. Click here to see more photos from the event.
