HOHE Women Writers Forum together with its partners, willbring nationally and internationally renowned and local women writers to present workshops, discussions, readings, performances and talks.  Through the forum we are working to create more spaces for women of all ages and from many walks of life to be inspired by published women writers to take the risk of writing and sharing their own stores.

The forum will create opportunity to network with other women trying to write, struggling with the changing publishing landscape, celebrating successes. The forum will be organized on a regular manner throughout the year having different themes with the main aim of celebrating the creative talents of women writers and nourishing women’s creative expression. We encourage girls and young women to share their perspective in public sphere on contemporary issues.
