Our Story

Women Who Write is a non-profit organization for women writers in the Louisville area. We welcome, educate and support all women who aspire to write. Our vision is to be the “go-to” place for women writers. All women interested in writing, in any genre, at any level, are invited to our meetings. Women Who Write was co-founded in May 1992 by local playwright and historian, Carridder (Rita) Jones.
