Historical Note about Women's Word on Record

Women's Words: On Record was established in the early 1980s as a writing group for women to give them a voice in the male dominated literary world. The then 12 members set up bylaws, published a monthly magazine, critiqued each others work, and shared publishing successes. Today the group publishes an online magazine called the "Record."
