I suspect a whole lot of poetry is written or read in the name of love during the month of February. But it’s always about the same thing: I love you and I hope you love me. However, this February, Women Who Write asks the question: do you love you? For the first time ever, Women Who Write is hosting a Holly-wood movie night at Cinemark Theaters, Mall St. Matthews, on Wednesday, Feb. 25, to answer that question.
Written and directed by women, Muffin Top: A Love Story is a humorous romantic comedy. It looks at the stereotypes of what it means to be the perfect woman in today’s society, and the lengths to which women are willing to go to find someone who will love them, when all along what we really need is to love ourselves. One way to do this is with good friends and lots of wine and chocolate.
We hope you can join us for a girls’ night out, learn more about what our women’s writing group can do for you, and what we have on tap this year.
While this movie is meant to be fun and a bit irreverent, it does raise serious questions about what constitutes an authentic female experience. For each of us, it is different and unique.
At Women Who Write, we offer support for all our members to explore their own experiences and provide a place to share them in safety and security. I have been blown away over the past year by the simple, honest and true voices that have been expressed in poetry, prose and blogs. I am thrilled that so many of you are finding your own true, one-of-a-kind voices.
So whether we are taking a lighter, more humorous look at the female condition, or examining the heart of a serious matter, everyone is on their own personal journey of discovery. Sharing it with others makes it all the sweeter.
