wp4 cover smIn the call for writings, student writers were encouraged to reflect and to write on the broad diversity of issues related to women and their experiences with making changes in their lives. Through personal stories, poems, opinion essays, advice, or other forms of writing, students addressed issues such as choice, metamorphosis, support networks, life transitions, confidence and self-understanding, and educational pursuits.

WE LEARN received 100 writings from students across the United States and Canada. They represented a range of topics and writing proficiency. This collection showcases 62 of those writings. The selection committee chose writings that best represented the theme. They also considered voice, clarity, heart, and writing technique.
