Grande Dame Literary is a group of women writers who share their formal writing training, workshop experience, and editing skills to promote fellow women writers and help them get published. The competition is stiff, and all too often the declines pour in. Out of the ashes of rejection, we started a blog to give women writers who write well and write good stories and memoirs an opportunity to be published. Helping you get published is our goal and to aid you on your writing journey, we're sharing our knowledge base with POLISH TO PUBLISH Self-Paced Writing Courses. Hone your vibrant voice and give yourself a better chance of making it to the editor's desk. Put on your pearls and grab your pen.
