Every Thursday women come together to share their writing with one another and receive feedback on how to structure and shape their life writing. Workshop facilitator Sandra Dunn, who is of Spanish descent, is also helping to launch the Riverhead workshop, along with María Jiménez, who is Mexican and leads a workshop in Farmingville. The diversity of Herstory groups is even more pronounced in the workshops for Latinas, since the local population is comprised of people from Argentina, Chile, Colombia and the Dominican Republic.

It meets every Thursday, 7-9 p.m., at the Senior Citizens Center, 128 Springs-Fireplace Road.
