In both fiction and personal nonfiction, few elements are more important than a truthful voice. Authenticity makes the writing intoxicating—and if it's missing, the reader can smell it.

In this Lilith creative writing workshop on Tuesday, July 30, 8-9 pm ET| 7-8 pm CT| 5-6 pm PT, we'll deconstruct authenticity with author @dianacspechler. What is it? What does it look like in literature? How can we access it in ourselves and apply it to our own writing? All are welcome—from emerging to experienced writers.

New on the Lilith blog from Susan Elia McNeal: a review of the Apple TV+ series "A New Look," which delves into Coco Chanel's wartime activities. 

"Until recently, Chanel’s Nazi past has been sidestepped. Authors and filmmakers tiptoed around what exactly she did during the war years, as well as her longstanding and virulent antisemitism. Many of the books published and films made about the designer concentrate on her designs, style, perfume, and the more palatable aspects of her history, while her life from 1941 to 1954 has typically been shrouded in vagueness and mystery. 

But many Jewish fashionistas knew the truth. And now, the way Chanel’s story is being told is changing."
