Description

There are more outlets than ever for writers to spread their messages and share their work, more opportunities to speak out and be seen. Writers expose themselves freely and willingly in a way that would have been unfathomable fifty years ago, and more people than ever are writing and publishing. Men and women are writing with equal fervor and commitment to their message and craft. As a result, it's easy to assume, or hope, that the gendered playing field is a thing of the past, too. Unfortunately for women writers, it's not. Knowing what we're up against and how to fight back is the heart and soul of Write On, Sisters
Inside these pages, Brooke Warner draws upon research, anecdotes, and her personal experiences from twenty years in the book publishing industry to show how women's writing is discounted or less valued than men's writing, then provides support to overcome these challenges. This book also shines light on how women writers face not only ever-present historical and social challenges but also their own self-limiting beliefs. Write On, Sisters is for every woman writer ready to be done with all that, and who's ready for the next revolution.
