Women of Letters is everyone’s favorite literary salon!
Every month, New York’s best and brightest women come together on stage to celebrate the lost art of letter writing. Expect laughter, tears, and camaraderie as host Sofija Stefanovic welcomes guests reading “A letter to my secret power”. Together on stage for the first time ever:
Esteemed fillmmaker, trapeze artist and Women's March organizer SARAH SOPHIE FLICKER
Comedian, television and podcast host NIKKI GLASER
Adored comic and actress SHARRON PAUL
Acclaimed singer-songwriter ANYA MARINA
Eminent filmmaker, screenwriter and Artistic Director of the Women's March PAOLA MENDOZA
Iconic actress, businesswoman and Private Practice star KATE WALSH
Each month, host Sofija Stefanovic introduces a lineup of six women, from various walks of life.
The most interesting and acclaimed writers, musicians, actors, comedians and politicians appear together on stage, in an intimate setting, with the purpose of celebrating female talent and the lost art of letter-writing.
The shows are funny and sad, and never recorded or filmed – part of the magic is that they exist in the moment, and the events are a safe story-telling space.
The show attracts guests of the highest caliber, from all disciplines. Women of Letters veterans include: Molly Ringwald, Jean Grae, Kathleen Turner, Margo Jefferson, Martha Wainwright, Aparna Nancherla, Siri Hustvedt, Edie Falco, Elaine Welteroth, Susan Orlean, Emma Straub, Alexis Okeowo, Sonia Manzano, Eileen Myles, Suki Kim, Tavi Gevinson, Yael Stone, Amber Tamblyn and many more. Proceeds from Women of Letters shows are regularly donated to charity, with over $750,000 being raised globally to date.
“In our world which is becoming increasingly more disconnected by dependency on social media and our tendencies to live online, I feel that projects like Women of Letters are the antidote. Bringing people together in one room to hear people tell their stories is a powerful reminder of our humanity” — Molly Ringwald
“Women of Letters is the perfect alchemy of literary art-party and storytelling, with drinking and bonding for all genders of truth-seekers. Marieke and Michaela deserve a medal for creating this happening while we're on earth.” — Amanda Palmer
“You'll bond with some crazy-talented women over diverse passions, intimate struggles, and of course, drinks.” — BUST Magazine
