Dolores Rems Reflects on 25 Years of Women Who Write
by Ronnie Hammer
In 1988 a group of women got together to help and encourage each other’s writing. They called themselves “Mothers Who Write,” and met in a house on Washington Street in Morristown. At that time the membership consisted of about 12 women. She says that the group encouraged many women. Their single group grew and became so popular that as word got around more groups were formed, expanding to 10 groups. The name was changed to “Women Who Write.”
The founder, Victoria Fann, started a similar group in Milwaukee , Wisconsin, and, when she moved to New Jersey, wanted to incorporate and expand into more states. This didn’t happen at that time, but might be a thought for the future.
Dolores started the Writer’s Notes column in Mother’s Who Write’s newsletter, and ran the column for several years before handing it over to her successor.
She has recently completed a 40 page history for Temple B’Nai Or in Morristown and is working on her own book entitled: T’Shuba.
