Young Women's Writing Circle

YOUNG WOMEN’S CIRCLE

 

Thank you to all the young women who have make this a really special group.  Also thank you to Vanessa for giving of her time to facilitate this group

 

Welcome to the Women’s  Circle

Background:

The Women’s Writing Circle was started by the Health and Support Services Programme of Triangle Project as both a support group and a space for self-expression for women .  It was noted that there were several women who had expressed an interest in writing, or who used writing as a form of self-healing, or both.

The aim was to offer women a space in which they could find kindred souls and share their creativity with one another. The group meets once a month to discuss different topics, share their own writing and talk about their experiences as lesbians and bisexual women in an affirming, safe environment.

The group had a very informal approach, with participants determining the agenda to a large extent. This year we hope to have slightly more structure, whilst at the same time maintaining the informality so as to provide for open participation. 

Women:

 A woman (pl: women) is a female human being. The term woman is usually reserved for an adult, with the term girl being the usual term for a female child or adolescent. However, the term woman is also sometimes used to identify a female human, regardless of age, as in phrases such as “Women’s Rights”.

Circle:

A circle is the locus of all points equidistant from a central point.All points are situated at different angles from the central point. However, although points occupy different spaces, they are all equal.

 

At the Women’s Circle, we are all different, with different identities, histories, current realities and beliefs, etc., but we are all equal and equally needed to make the circle complete. It is hoped that you will find this space rewarding, and welcome suggestions to improve the way we engage.
