What It Takes to Be a Writer

April 28, 2016

by Sallie Bingham

Every Tuesday evening, I drive the sixty plus miles from Santa Fe to Taos to join the six or seven members of my writing group, sponsored by SOMOS, the long-lived and long-enduring Society of the Muse of the Southwest.

Several years ago, Bonnie Lee Black, then living in Taos and the most gifted teacher I have had the privilege of encountering, began our workshop in the writing of what is called–rather mystifyingly, to me– “Creative Non-Fiction.” This seems to beg the question: what is non-creative non-fiction? I dread to think…

Last fall, Bonnie moved to Mexico and it seemed that our workshop, like all of them, would end.

The Rogue Factor

April 26, 2016

The day was designed to honor and commemorate the work of the eighty-eight year old wife of a former president of Morehead, Wilma Grote, who had established the first symposium for the advancement of women in 1991.

Wild West Women

by Sallie Bingham

Writing about the West has been almost exclusively male territory, perhaps because the few women whom history has recorded were either whores—as in Santa Fe’s Red Light District on West San Francisco Street, where a well-known madam ran a very successful brothel, bar, and gambling den for men coming off the Santa Fe Trail—or Eastern women of means, like Mary Cabot Wheelwright who established the Hogan-shaped Native American museum here.
