Our Work is WAVES
Dear Creative Woman,
WAVES continues to organize itself as an expanding vessel for both the anthology and the infinite bounty of the responses it engenders from newly-engaged artists and writers. With your overwhelmingly positive response to empower the anthology to live and breathe now with no limit to its future possibilities, we usher this beloved work towards a wider global audience by investing in its longevity with the future of digitization and virtual engagement.
With no limit to its future possibilities, we are publishing the anthology beginning now – piece by piece – in our monthly WAVES publication and by digitizing all work from the anthology in the format of a book serialization online. To view our unfolding WAVES: A Confluence of Women’s Voices, begin here.
Return often to find more of the digital book pages available online and subscribe to receive the monthly WAVES publication – bringing the voices of the anthology and newly-submitted work to your inbox. You can find the WAVES archive gallery below. By subscribing, you will also receive updates about our fellowships and virtual Global Camps, a lively hybrid of a WAVES book club, wisdom-share, and your best ever creative day for working on your own creative projects alongside contributors and women from around the world. In this way, we make the work of WAVES circular and alive, accessible to women around the world, anyone who calls herself a writer or artist. Our invitation to submit and receive is free.
A Room of Her Own sponsors a not-for-profit, non-exclusive, open-access digital publication with a long view —to amass a mother archive online of the collective memory and long history of women artists and writers and make it accessible to its worldwide community of women. Woven together with the diverse voices and visions of our radiant Waves Anthology and newly-submitted creative work, WAVES publication hones the global presence of creative women to a pearl.
