About Sister Circle Writers
A Place for You
Established in 2016, Sister Circle Writers (SCW) began as a haven for my friends and colleagues to talk about their writing and research projects and academic life for Black women in higher education. The challenges are many, and the safe spaces are few. I love to see my sister-friends and colleagues succeed, and SCW was my way to help foster the connection of career expectations (publish or perish) and community activism. As I tell my coworkers, Black women do not have the luxury of researching and writing just for the fun of it, and our work has implications for our community.
None the less, I have been blessed to support a group of dynamic women that has grown exponentially over the years. Women that represent every walk of life are now a part of SCW. Women who have words in their heads, meaningful stories that need to come out and be in their hands, and the hands of the community. These words encompass many genres from poetry, self-help of all kinds, business plans, personal narratives, and yes, of course, those academic projects for the publish or perish crowd.
It is and will always be my pleasure and my passion for facilitating the birth of an idea or dream to the written word. Many years ago, I was once called a vision coordinator and an encourager of dreams that description has stuck with me because organizing thought and encouraging others is what I do.
So, if you ever need help to get those words out of your head, those stories, inspirational messages, business ideas, and even a grant proposal or two reach out to me so we can come up with a strategy.
