Sullivan Street Press’s Deborah Emin called Washing the Dust from Our Hearts (Grayson Books) “One of the Best Poetry Books of 2015.” Bustle’s Emily Ce Miller declared the Afghan Women’s Writing Project anthology “beautiful, brave, and inspiring all at once.” And Suzanne Russell, writing in Women’s Voices for Change said: “It is difficult to convey the extraordinary energy and strength of the brave girls and women who write for Afghan Women’s Writing Project (AWWP)…they are fierce and their writing is full of hope for a better future for Afghanistan.”

We are so proud of the poetry and prose of the Afghan women and girls we serve. Books may be purchased for $18 each at the AWWP market page. All proceeds go towards continuing our in-country and online workshops.
