Kate Hopper discusses "Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers"


Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers is a guide to the art of creative nonfiction for women who want to give written expression to their lives as mothers. The book includes excerpts of quality writing about motherhood and teaches readers how to find the heart of their writing, learn to use motherhood as a lens through which to write the world, and turn their motherhood stories into art.

“Use Your Words brings a unique voice to the world of writing guides: honest, forthright, funny. … It’s totally original in that it covers the specific areas where the experience of motherhood fires—and complicates—the task of writing.”--Bonnie J. Rough, author of Carrier: Untangling the Danger in My DNA


Kate Hopper has an MFA in creative writing from the University of Minnesota, where she taught literature and creative writing. She currently teaches a variety of classes at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, including Motherhood & Words, a class for women interested in writing about motherhood.
