Women Writing Women's Lives

Hide Profile

The Women Writing Women’s Lives Biography Seminar includes approximately seventy members engaged in writing book-length biographies and memoirs. The group first began meeting in 1990 and represents a wide range of feminist perspectives and a variety of professional backgrounds. Our members include academics, independent scholars, and journalists. Membership dues help support our operating expenses. Women Writing Women’s Lives is under the aegis of the Center for the Study of Women and Society and the Center for the Humanities at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. To encourage members’ projects, the Women Writing Women’s Lives Biography Seminar offers a forum in which to discuss approaches, methods, and themes. The seminar meets in New York City monthly, from October to May, to present work for discussion, share ideas, and hear about the work of outside presenters. Membership in the seminar is limited and by application only; all members may bring one guest a year.
