Dear Creative Sister,
When we dare to meet in the deepest pools of creative intention, how will we introduce ourselves?
A Room of Her Own’s long vision is to amass a multimedia mother archive of the collective memory and storied history of women artists and writers. Weaving the diverse voices of our radiant Waves Anthology together with newly-submitted creative work, responses to The Q, Global Camps, and more, each WAVES edition adds a glistening droplet to the expansive sea of longing that bonds us all.

“Exposure” by Greta Gladney, AROHO Global Summer Camp 2023
the light that is FREEDOM passed me by
a promise in words
parched and hollow
my time a continuous rotation of sun and moon
“Fracture” by Juanita Kirton
As a creative woman, my deepest need is: to continue on this writing journey, go deeper, wider, longer and higher.
“Spiral Bound” by Coke Tani, AROHO Global Summer Camp 2023
One thing led to another and another, and before I knew it, I couldn’t stop taking pictures of all kinds of empty spaces … I remember so clearly how, when these “empty space” [pictures] began, my breathing went to my belly.
No country. Show me one and I will
point out no line
scratched in the earth, no
fence as long
as you say. So
No one has one.
The closest thing to a
country is your body. You
country of your own that is
but it’s not old enough,
to sing in your ears
like birds do.
And birds are still
at this point, everywhere.
“My Country of Origin Is” by Tandy Sturgeon Wolff, in response to The Q
“… in my heart [this piece] belongs to Waves and nowhere else.”
