One of the benefits of being a writer is getting to know other writers. This page is devoted to sharing some of the words of other female writers that have resonated with me, challenged me, transformed me. I will update it as I can. Here are a few authors and their web sites + featured pieces.

1. Kaitlin B. Curtice: Storyteller. Poet.

Kaitlin Curtice is a Native American Christian author and speaker. As an enrolled citizen of the Potawatomi nation and someone who has grown up in the Christian faith, Kaitlin writes on the intersection of Indigenous spirituality, faith in everyday life, and the church.” 

2. Gail Dudley: Publisher, Author, Speaker.

6. Austin Channing Brown: Writer, Speaker.

“In a time when nearly all institutions (schools, churches, universities, businesses) claim to value “diversity” in their mission statements, I’M STILL HERE is a powerful account of how and why our actions so often fall short of our words. Austin writes in breathtaking detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice, in stories that bear witness to the complexity of America’s social fabric–from Black Cleveland neighborhoods to private schools in the middle-class suburbs, from prison walls to the boardrooms at majority-white organizations.”

7. Dorcas Cheng-Tozun: Writer & Editor, Communications Consultant

“She is an award-winning writer, editor, speaker, communications consultant, and former columnist. Her work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Christianity Today, Image Journal, and dozens of other publications in the U.S., Asia, and Africa and continues to provide communications consulting for social-benefit companies around the world.”

And in a time such as this,
as Cesar Chavez says,
“Art [should] disturb the comfortable,
and comfort the disturbed.”
