“We are the words; we are the music; we are the thing itself.”
― Virginia Woolf, Moments of Being
We “are the words” and we are quickened by the truths women have claimed in the past year, echoing a resolute awareness of our creative selves, our collective wisdom, and our legacy.
In 2019, we carry forward our shared purpose by expanding our collaborative narrative with The Q, preparing the Waves Anthology for publication, and continuing the Gifts of Fellowship.
Inspired by a woman who creates “the extraordinary from the ordinary,” published poet and clinical therapist, Kristi Crutchfield Cox offers a prismatic invitation this January for her Gift of Fellowship, a deep, joyful work of “Claiming Self.”
Inspired by your words in The Q, we harness its potency into a focal point, and invite you to submit a response – your words, your art, your music, your own creative riposte, however you are compelled – to a featured question we will pull each month from The Q, our “room of our own.” Women’s responses will be published in digital Waves, tindering a unique ongoing dialogue by and for women in the world of arts.
We begin with a question central to the heart, to claiming “the thing itself.”
You are invited to submit a creative response here.
