Announcement: Our Visions, Our Voices

An exciting series from our friends at Mormon Women Writers

What place do “Mormon” women writers have in the 21st century?

Join poets, novelists, memoirists and non-fiction authors from California to Canada to explore the question in Our Visions, Our Voices: The Mormon Women’s Literary Tour to university campuses throughout the Southwest, the week of March 22.

The ground-breaking project brings women writers face-to-face with audiences that recognize the need for a vibrant writing culture. Readings, which are open to the public, will be at:
     Claremont College, Claremont, California, March 22
     Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, March 23
     Southern Utah University in Cedar City, March 25
     Utah Valley University in Orem, March 26
     University of Utah in Salt Lake, March 27.

Project founders Dr. Joanna Brooks of San Diego State University and Dr. Holly Welker of Salt Lake City have tapped into a range of denominations that share historic roots with the greater Mormon and Latter Day Saint traditions.

“This is about creating common ground,” says Brooks, a professor of English. “We want to create a space for women writers to share their art and reflect on what it might mean to be a Mormon woman in the 21st century.”

Audio will be podcast at Women writers who want to contribute to the tour’s archive at the University of Utah Marriot Special Collections Library can bring their own writings to the readings. We hope you will want to contribute to the archives.
