Speaker to share stories of historic Texas women

A journalist, author, writing teacher and storyteller will present Outstanding and Unknown Women in Texas History March 6 on SE Campus.

Carmen Goldthwaite will tell stories about women who made contributions to Texas history 11:30 a.m.-12:50 p.m. in the SE library. 

“She is going to be presenting in her storytelling capacity, and she will be basically highlighting interesting and maybe little-known or unknown women in Texas history,” said Amy Staley, SE student development associate.

A seventh-generation Texan and Fort Worth native, Goldthwaite writes Texas Dames as a columnist for Texas dailies and weeklies. She also serves as a contributing writer for True West, Wild West, American Cowboy and Latitudes and Attitudes magazines.

Staley said the presentation will help students learn more about important Texas women.

“It highlights people that they may never have heard of who have made very neat, and sometimes different, sometimes exciting contributions to Texas, as well as maybe beyond Texas,” she said.

An instructor at three universities, Goldthwaite has taught at Southern Methodist University for more than 10 years and currently teaches Narrative Nonfiction and Introduction to Creative Writing. A former reporter, she is writer-in-residence at Texas Christian University’s Center for Community Journalism. She also teaches participants in the Novice Writer’s Circle and the Intermediate Writer’s Circle.
