Promoting women’s leadership and taking time to support each other were the themes that resonated for me at several conferences I attended on behalf of the Journalism & Women Symposium (JAWS) the past couple of months.
A Women’s Caucus started three years got together again in February at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs conference in Seattle, and its leadership is eager to collaborate with JAWS on events and mentoring going forward. Finding ways to help young women writers is high on its agenda. With so many of our JAWS members writing books, we have a lot of wisdom to share with each other. For starters, we plan to do a joint mentoring panel at the AWP conference next year in St. Paul/Minneapolis and several AWP members plan to attend the JAWS conference in Palm Springs Oct. 31–Nov. 2.
