Every woman has a story to tell. And every woman should share her story, her knowledge, her wisdom, her journey, her imagination…
What is your idea that you’d like to write? How can I help you get over the hurdles holding you back?
It took me a long time to discover the real power of writing and the gifts that it gives us.
Hi. I’m Glenna Mageau, award-winning author, speaker and coach and founder of The Women Writes Movement. I have published 9 books – 5 suspense/thrillers, 4 heart touching, humor nonfiction. But it was a long journey to get here.
I’ve written most of my life. I wrote my first novel at the age of 9. It eventually ended up in the garbage can as I was too embarrassed that someone might actually read it. Today, I wish I had it as I would love to know exactly what I wrote. I don’t have it but it did start my life long love of writing.
My goal is to help women find their voice through writing, to be able to share their story, their journey, their message or whatever their imagination can create. Writing is an amazing gift.
Where are you at with your writing? Are you feeling stuck? overwhelmed? unsure where to go with your story?
The truth is that writing itself is pretty easy but getting over the hurdles – what do I write, how do I make it interesting, who’d read it, I’m not a writer… – can be pretty daunting and frustrating.
I want you to have fun with writing and to fall in love with it like I have. It truly is the best gift.
I teach simple, easy techniques that will connect to your idea in a new way so it makes it easier for the words to flow and the story to come to life. I help you find the confidence and consistency so that you can get writing and keep writing so that you can get your book written.
I have written over 25 books – fiction and nonfiction. Only 9 are published, though. The other ones I consider my practice sessions or training wheels. I’ve also started many and just abandoned them as I wasn’t sure where to go with them. I used to believe that when I wrote a story, it had to be great as soon as I had written it or it was crap. I truly didn’t understand how to take an idea and grow into a book, one that was really good. Little did I know that unless you spend time with your idea, it might just die a slow death and that the magic to make a story great, is in the rewrites.
I know what it’s like to want to write… to want to do something with your writing… to want to share your wisdom, your journey, your knowledge, but feeling it’s not good enough… or not sure where or how to start…
And I know what it feels like to finally get to that place of taking those steps… Writing and publishing your book.
I want that for you.
Through my whole journey I felt I had to do it on my own. It was not fun and I had to work hard to figure everything out. It was slow and painful. It was when I reached out and I started working with others to learn how to make my writing better, how to change how I saw my writing that I finally was able to write stories that were compelling and interesting and to get over that hurdle that my writing was worth publishing.
My goal is to help you make your dream a reality… and give you the tools you need to be able to write your book.
The Women Writes Movement
really came about because of interviews I had done with women over the age of 80, who stepped outside the norm for their day. They did what most women weren’t – getting educated or getting a job. It was while I was doing this, that I started reading about the Women’s Rights Movement (also known as the suffragette movement – not really a nice name for what was a powerful endeavor).
Many of these women I interviewed had never shared their story.
It really inspired me because there are a lot of women who step up and find their dream and there are a lot of women who don’t but the truth is all struggle with believing they are good enough. So I created the Women Writes Movement to provide a hub for women to share their stories (fiction and nonfiction), their journeys, their love of writing, their successes and their struggles because we are all truly in this together.
