The Afghan Women’s Writing Project

7 Dec

As a writer, I love to encourage other people to write. I believe that everyone can and should express themselves in writing, even if they are never formally published. Everyone has a voice, and that voice deserves to be heard.

In some ways, the voices that most deserve to be heard are those of people who have little voice and few listeners in their own lives.

The Afghan Women’s Writing Project has been created to give women of Afghanistan a chance to use their voices. I urge everyone to check out their web site, read the poems and prose pieces that these women have written, and leave comments.

Their stories will touch your hearts.
