|TWM Special Women Writer's Event|
Raise The Count! Women in Publishing
Women authors discuss their experiences with publishing
and offer advice for aspiring women writers
The Count 2010, a study from VIDA: Women in the Literary Arts, has ignited a conversation about why women are being published less than men. Their data showed that across fourteen major literary and critical publications, women were less published and fewer books by women were being reviewed than books by men.
In response to this, three New York City based women's organizations, The Woodhull Institute, The Women's Mosaic, and Paradigm Shift NYC proudly present "Raise The Count! Women in Publishing," a panel discussion of women authors about their experiences getting published and their advice for aspiring women writers.
Stay tuned for more information about this exciting event!
|ANNOUNCING: TWM's New Intern Elizabeth David|
TWM SPOTLIGHT: Elizabeth David
We would like to introduce Elizabeth David to The Women's Mosaic community! She has just started an internship with TWM, and is looking forward to her involvement in the organization's ongoing mission to educate and inspire women.
Elizabeth hails from Southwestern Florida and is currently pursuing a Master's degree in International Affairs at The New School in New York City. In her undergraduate life, she was an International Studies major minoring in Women's Studies and was transformed by her study abroad experience in Florence, Italy. As a recent transplant to "The Big Apple," Elizabeth is open to all possibilities: "I am very excited and inspired to be in New York to find out more about myself and the career path that is right for me."
When Elizabeth found out about TWM when she attended one of TWM founder Kristina Leonardi's career seminars. "Originally I was moved by the description of TWM on the website explaining what being a woman means," she said. "I believe, along with the organization, that women have the opportunity to "recognize our unity both here and abroad, while celebrating the beauty of all the diversity that exists within and around us." Since these goals are compatible with Elizabeth's academic background and possible professional goals for the future, it easy to see why she became affiliated with TWM.
She is also looking forward to working with Kristina, the heart and soul of TWM: "I am inspired by her energy and passion for women's empowerment."
What does she see in TWM's future? "I foresee great things," Elizabeth said. "TWM has attracted many women of all cultures to events and activities...I think that with continuing these events, this organization has so much room to grow to a wider population of women throughout the city and throughout the world."
After discussing her interest in the organization's mission, it is hard to believe that Elizabeth has only just joined us. We look forward to her contributions to TWM's ongoing journey!
