The Light Between Us
Order The Light Between Us: True Stories of Healing through Creative Expression by Pen Women
When we least expect it, our lives sometimes fall apart. We then turn our whole selves to light, to explore or re-explore our intrinsic creative energy. The result is, as these stories illustrate, the emergence of new vision.
The Light Between Us is the open and honest sharing of renewal. Throughout these pages, creative women bear witness to the healing power of artistic and literary expression. These stories will lift your soul and give inspiration to your own new vision.
Poems of the Super Moon
Pre-order for the second printing of Poems of the Super Moon, the latest in the Pen Women Press’s collection of poetry by Pen Women. Our literary Press relies on sales to cover costs.
From the Preface by Treanor Baring, Poems of the Super Moon editor:
…These poems are not only about the moon; they are about life itself. The moon sheds its light on moments in our lives when longing and knowing converge. The authors here have set these moments, some small, some extraordinary, to words. Several are offered as prayers, others as cries in the dark, even more as testimonies to the wonder of being alive. The moon has inspired these poems, but it is the inspiration that comes from within women that we celebrate with this anthology.
