Montana Women Writers Workshop with Caroline Patterson
At the Northern Rockies Heritage Hall in Missoula, MT
Author and Executive Director of the Missoula Writing Collaborative, Caroline Patterson, inspires aspiring male and female writers with a short history of several historic Montana women writers and then leads the audience in writing sketches about remarkable women in their past: homesteaders, teachers, ranchers, rodeo riders, homemakers, and bartenders. Audience members who prefer recording an oral history will use DIY technology to capture their stories on audio. Story collections can be shared with the group and online, building a new history of Montana women.
