Write with courage for impact and change. Because your story matters.
Greetings and welcome to my website! My name is Carolyn Tate and I’m on an adventure to write the stories that move us to remake our world—particularly for women and Mother Earth. Alongside writing, I also teach and mentor women to unleash their voice and write with courage for impact and change.
I’ve seen too many women my age (and way younger) fade into the background as they get older. Sexism and ageism are a lethal combination. We can feel ignored and overlooked and we start to believe our stories don’t matter, that they’re not worth writing and sharing.
Truth is, our stories matter now more than ever.
By writing them and adding them to the collective of women’s stories we might just begin to make a dent in the man-made universe to rebalance history with her-story.
That’s why the Brave Women Writers’ Circles have been launched. They’re a brave space for women to find their voice and free the writer within to get their story out into the world whether that’s a novel, a book of poetry or a blog series.
So who am I and how am I qualified to help? As a professional writer of more than 15+ years, I’ve written six books including Brave Women Write and my best-seller The Purpose Project and I’m the creator of Love Stories of the Birrarung (a storytelling and community engagement project aimed at inspiring Victorians to love our river) and Between Two Hills (a chronicle of our tree-change and novice farming journey). I’ve also been teaching purpose and storytelling in workplaces and schools all over Australia for the last 10+ years.
I’m an ex-banker and marketer turned purpose pioneer, writer and educator who is a nature lover, ecofeminist, novice farmer and river swimmer. For the past 20+ years I’ve been delivering on purposeful projects as a freelancer so I know how to turn your big story idea into tangible outcomes for lasting change.
Come take an adventure with me and free your inner writer.
Because you story matters.
