A Room Of Her Own Foundation has put out the call for submissions to its first ever Waves Anthology. I’m thrilled to be a board member of the organisation and happy to help make this announcement. AROHO, committed to ending the isolation of creative women, is looking for new & established voices, published & unpublished work for this soon to be landmark anthology. ALL WOMEN are invited to submit creative work of all kinds, including work from the 2015 AROHO Retreat Waves Discussion Series, and even portions of previously submitted Gift of Freedom applications.
