Announcing Important and Exciting News about the IAJW!
First an update: Ruth Folit, the founder and director of IAJW, has been on sabbatical for the last two years. Initially, it was so that she could care for her ill husband, Marc Weinberg. Sadly, Marc died in September 2015. Ruth spent the last year writing, remembering, re-organizing, and re-orienting. Ultimately, she decided it was time to pass on the reins of IAJW to an outstanding journal writing advocate and enthusiast who would bring fresh energy to the IAJW community.
Ruth is thrilled to announce that Lynda Monk will be our new Director of the IAJW.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time of transition. We are excited to offer you fresh ideas, inspiration, motivation, community and more for your own unique journaling and life writing journey.
The IAJW will re-launch with new offerings and a new look in September 2017.
In the meantime, stay current with updates and exciting pre-launch gift giveaways by signing up to join our IAJW community.
