    "We all know that being a writer is hard. But nothing can quite describe the daring, sometimes terrifying, experience of being a woman writer in Afghanistan — except maybe the words that Afghan women writers produce themselves. If you’re interested in what it’s like not only to be a woman in Afghanistan, but to be a woman writer there, you’ll want to check out the Afghan Women’s Writing Project, and their newest anthology, "Washing the Dust from Our Hearts," just released from Grayson Books."

"In her introduction to the anthology, writer and Dari translator Pari tells us what writing means to her: "Writing began for me as an escape from my burqa, an escape from my most painful moments. With my pen and notebook, I had a secret place where I gave myself freedoms that were forbidden to me. I expressed my thoughts, a woman whispering on the page, and described the needs I saw in Afghan society." READ MORE AT: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/stacy-p...

    This awesome collection of poems and prose by women in Afghanistan is like a hand reaching out across the world, or many hands, of women longing to be heard. As an American writer with all the freedom and time I need, my head bows to these brave women risking their own safety to put pen to paper. "Yesterday my country was a desert. Now my brothers and sisters are planting trees." "Do not force my silence. I want to speak, I said. I want to speak, speak, and speak."

Read and hear their voices, for they write in online workshops mentored by American women they have never met.

    I've read the English portion of this book. I will revisit the Dari when I know more Persian. It is a short read but it left me with equal parts of anguish, sadness, and hope for Afghan girls and women. I was in tears by the end but know that under those burqas, these women are the epitome of the saying 'go head underestimate me at your own peril'. I've read the English portion of this book.
