From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

May Sarton symposium

     Happy to say I will be attending and volunteering at this wonderful event; The May Sarton symposium. Just picked up one of her journals and one of her novels to read in advance. I don't think I have ever read anything but her poetry, and know that I have a lot to learn from and about her. She certainly was a prolific writer!  http://maysarton100.org/index.html
