The poets of the Afghan Women’s Writing Project, founded in 2009, are known by first names only. They risk much, including their lives, to take up the pen. For many, it is their only outlet.
They want their words to be heard.
Five local actresses will read selected pieces by 15 of these Afghani women and girls. The readings will be recorded and the recording sent back to Afghanistan in the hope these brave writers will have a chance to see and hear their words come to life.
