“What is voice? What empowers women to speak up, out, boldly, truthfully? And why must women claim a place at the table?” asks Brooke Warner, hybrid-press founder and author of Green-Light Your Book and The Magic of Memoir, in the introduction to her latest book on publishing. “These questions are at the heart of Write On, Sisters!, which is also a clarion call to women to write, to speak and be heard, and to recognize the myriad influences – historical, cultural, economic, emotional – at play when it comes to how we express ourselves and allow ourselves to be heard.” Warner showcases the barriers that have historically impeded women in publishing and provides encouragement and advice for overcoming both internal (silencing an inner critic, dealing with rejection) and external (lack of financial stability, double standards in the industry) obstacles to getting published.
