The Writers’ Workshop
Since 1985, our mission is to provide programs that educate and nurture writers and readers of all ages and backgrounds. We’ve helped thousands of adults, children and teens improve their writing and reading skills. Our goal is to raise $12,500 this year to continue our award-winning programs in NC, SC, NY and IN; to offer free writing classes to young people in Western North Carolina at area libraries; to give workshop scholarships to low-income writers; and to provide cash awards for our contest winners.
Only your tax-deductible donation will make these worthy goals possible! A donation of $75 or more includes a year’s membership, which entitles you to discounts on all workshops and contests. To donate or to join The Writers’ Workshop, please click on register. As always, any amount would be greatly appreciated! Continue reading

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events.
“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
