Crystal, North Carolina, USA

“Thank you! and I’m so excited that you’re accepting them!! Yay!”

Kassandra, California, USA

“Thank you again for all of your hard work and I am grateful for the time you’ve spent helping me.”

Ann, Africa & Suffolk, England

“Just to say how beautiful the printed copy of ‘When Women Waken’ was.”

Julie, Australia

 “Thank you for the time you will give to assessing my work. I appreciate that you are volunteers. I would like you to know that getting my “love” memoir published in the Our Stories acted as a catalyst. It prompted this very unromantic woman to believe she just might be able to write something commercial (ie a romance). My paid work and domestic chores have been cast aside, to do so. I have already written 30,000 words since your publication, the fastest I’ve ever written anything. And this despite the large amount of research I had to do on the historical events I’ve used, and two countries I haven’t been to that I’ve used as settings! So thank you, thank you, thank you. You’re doing something really worthwhile and you’ve made a significant difference for this budding writer.”


“It is an honor to be published on When Women Waken.”

Joan, United States

“What a beautiful journal with such terrific work. I’m honored to be included. “

    Hello Anora, I searched for a “contact email” without luck so I’m using this box in the hope that my questions can be resolved. I will submit my work, but I need assistance from you first. I commented on two stories yesterday and I don’t see my comments. I also don’t understand the process of showing a “link” to the comments. I would appreciate knowing what to do next.

    I have seen your publication for the first time, and it is lovely. I like that you combine art and poetry both I believe are important. I wanted to recommend a title for a publication called EARTH, since our earth is feminine in nature as in mother nature I thought it would be a good title for your one of your publications.

    I hope to submit

  6. When my first piece was accepted for WWW I didn’t expect the wonderful spinoff that I’d “meet” other like-minded, thoughtful women. It is a brilliant publication and thanks Anora for thinking of it, making it happen and then working so hard on it for so long.
