Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Dawn Yun is the mother of the Mothers Who Write classes at Book Passage in Corte Madera, Calif., which was born in 2004. After she had her daughter, Mimi, she, like millions of mothers nationwide, joined a mothers' club and spent much of her time at parks.
One of the first questions always asked: "What did you do before becoming a mom?" When Dawn said the magic word, "writer," the response was overwhelming. Many women said that since becoming mothers they had begun to write but didn't know what to do with their words.
Dawn later wrote an article about Book Passage, the iconoclastic, influential and much loved book store, for The San Francisco Chronicle. She approached the store's owner, Elaine Petrocelli, a mother of four, about starting a writing class just for mothers. Elaine eagerly agreed. And so began a series of four-week classes for mothers to have a dedicated time and place to write and to share their writing with each other.
The popular classes soon morphed into The Writing Mamas Salon, which now meets the second Sunday of every month, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Some of the mothers have been published and many have not, but all share a love of the written word.
