What I liked, I liked a lot, but I didn't like it all

If you are a woman, a writer and a feminist, this is definitely the book for you. I enjoyed it and got a lot out of it in terms of the writing exercises and enjoyed reading about how the Women Writing for (a) Change writing classes and workshops are run, but I found the first few and last few chapters boring.

Though the author says she dislikes WWf(a)C being called "New Agey," I felt the book had a very strong feminist and New Age aesthetic. It turned me off a bit in the beginning, but didn't bother me so much for the rest of the book.

Finally, for an author who talks so much in the book about removing ego from the equation, I personally felt that HER ego was very present in this book, esp. in the beginning and ending chapters, which is probably why I liked them least. Still, I applaud the author for the groundbreaking work she's done in creating WWf(a)C.
