Life Writing

All writers are “life writers,” whether we are writing fiction, nonfiction, biography, memoir or a novel. Our job is to embrace the extraordinary and the everyday, to use our imaginations and our emotions, our research skills and our analytical abilities. But what happens when we write the lives of women? Are there special challenges to writing about women?
