Why I chose Sigma Theta Lambda

I founded Sigma Theta Lambda Literary Sorority, Inc. to unite women writers, literary artists and literature lovers around the central cause of increasing literacy and love of literature and writing in our communities. However, it was also important to me that Sigma Theta Lambda provide a network of true sisterly bonds to her members that serve not only as encouragement to complete creative projects, but also as friends in all aspects of life. I am proud to say that Sigma Theta Lambda lives up to my vision, and this is why I treasure my membership in this Sisterhood.

Why I chose Sigma Theta Lambda

I have watched it from its inception and I have attended activities. I really liked the fact that the focus was on promoting literacy and service. I love to read, and I really enjoy the book club, Literary Links. The members were always welcoming, and it didn't seem to matter that I was old enough to be their mothers. I am learning so much at 61, and I am enjoying my young sisters.
