“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
