WOMEN’S WRITING PROJECT


wefsaAn annual anthology of women’s stories, fiction or non-fiction is a product of our Women’s Writing Project where we seek to facilitate women’s voices using alternative media. Women’s stories are often told by third parties and portray stereotypes about women mostly presenting women as incapable as well as being best when reduced to female submission. We seek to change this by helping women to tell their own stories in their own spaces.
