The Q


Sophia Hawthorne gave up writing

when she married Nathaniel on July 9, 1842.

Georgia O’Keeffe chose to paint because

“no one would care”

And Virginia Woolf doubted “beautiful words.”

The Q breaks through

what’s often talked around when it comes to women’s creativity

light a candle, rather than curse the darkness

Since we started the Q in 2013, 800 women have responded with a wealth of information that it would take a lifetime to fully synthesize.  That synthesis begins now.

The original survey revealed provocative themes best illuminated by women’s responses to the following question:

What question about your creative life are you most afraid to ask?

Now we ask each other

What am I free to do for myself and others because I don’t have to wait?
