In honor of the twentieth anniversary of Women Writing for a Change, Phebe Beiser hosts Mary Pierce Brosmer as she examines the past and present of the organization Mary founded and cultivated.
Mary’s early work as teacher and poet inspired women to seek her out as mentor. Believing women had many untold stories, Mary created a safe space for them to share, through words, “parts of themselves nobody knew.” She recognized that connection and consciousness would transform the lives and organizations of women, young women and men, in and around Greater Cincinnati, and the world.
Currently, Mary considers her relationship to WWfac as grandmother. She has returned to teach poetry classes, which remain at the core of her work. “It is most in line with who I came into the world as.”
Mary Pierce Brosmer believes “we know ourselves through language.” Listen as she shares her insights and writings as teacher, writer, entrepreneur, organizational consultant and social healer.
