Afghan Women’s Writing Project, seeking editor

No comments

I don't know how many of you are familiar with the Afghan Women's Writing Project, but it is an utterly amazing project that brings together (mostly American) writers with Afghan women writing students. They do online classes and then publish the pieces on a blog. Their stories are absolutely riveting, compelling, inspiring and illuminating. Right now the founder, novelist Masha Hamilton, is seeking an editor.

She says: the job is about eight hours a week, giving the final kiss to the material that goes on the blog, someone reliable and a self-starter, and yes, it's all volunteer, but for a good cause.

You all know about good causes, volunteering, etc right? 😉
Anyway, if any of you are interested, it is an INCREDIBLE project. Check it out here http://www.awwproject.org/

and if you would like to pursue the editor position, contact Masha Hamilton at masha@mashahamilton.com.
