Dear woman of art and letters,

The AROHO story is not about any one creative woman, it's a story about all of us--our origins, our works of art, and how we make room for each other. Together, our purpose is to innovate and elevate a narrative and vision unique to creative women. 

We approach this task by posing questions to prompt the creative engagement and paint a portrait of women around the world. Your response to these questions, those to come, and whatever you can't stop thinking about matter to us and can be submitted through the "Lend Your Creative Voice & Vision to WAVES" form.

WAVES is a not-for-profit, non-exclusive, open-access publication with a long view -- to amass a Mother Archive of the collective memory and long history of women artists and writers. Woven together with the diverse voices and visions of our radiant Waves anthology, WAVES digital publications hone the global presence of creative women to a pearl. WAVES submissions and subscriptions are always free.

We honor our complexities as creative women and invite you to share with us here who you are. Your background, your culture, your identity, your language, your spiritual observances, your creative practice, your economic reality, your education, your ideas – all of these factors create a unique, self-identified creative woman who contributes to our diverse world.  

As artists, writers, and co-creators, our way is collaboration. Whether your contribution comes in the form of a scholarly essay, a work of sculpture, a poem, story, or raw, personal reflection within the Q, we thank you for lending your voice and vision. Your presence is everything.

The women of AROHO

An archive of the collective memory and long history of women writers and artists, WAVES seeks art and letters that speak to and illustrate who we are as creative women and our relationship to life, work, art, culture, our ancestors and each other – past, present, and future. Whatever you can't stop thinking about matters to us. All submissions are considered for possible publication in our open-access WAVES publication.
