    Great photos, Cheney!
    THANK YOU. Thank you to AWWP writers, AWWP team, Theater J and the nine readers from the OUT OF SILENCE performance.
    I look forward to the day when our writers can openly share their words in their own names, reading aloud in their own voices- until then, it remains an honor to have participated in this project.
    -Jessica.

  2. let me think deeply, close my eyes, no no no it is not me…
    let my touch, am I not sleep, am I dreaming, no no no it is not me…

    let me, open my eys as much as I can, and look at the these nice pitures, Yes, there is my name, too which means the actresses read my writings, which means, I was heard, which means audince claped for me, oh yes it is me and it is roya!

    Thanks for AWWP project and the wonderful programs, it is important and a need you are working and supporting Afghan writers.

    I cant forget the night I was writing and my family turned off the light and said, we are bored what are you writing? and tommorrow of that day when I read my writing to my best friend, she yawned and didnt care. I stoped reading my writing for others, and I never dared to tell any one close or strange to me that I can write, I understand the feelings, I can express my self.

    This website is house of my secret writings, when I am not in this world, the readers, those who read my writings and I never know them, will understand us, Hearts will beat for us, and eyes will cry for the very painful life of Afghan women, here in Afghanistan.
