“Women Speak” presented by Women of Appalachia Project

August 27 @ 1:00 pm

“Women Speak” is a juried presentation of story, poetry and song showcasing women artists living in or having strong ties to Appalachia. It is an annual program presented by Women of Appalachia Project (WOAP).

Join us Saturday, August 27, 2022 from 1-3pm at Towngate Theatre in Wheeling. The event is free and open to the public.

About WOAP
Many people have an image of an Appalachian woman, and they look down on her. The mission of WOAP is to showcase the way in which female artists respond to the Appalachian region as a source of inspiration, bringing together women from diverse backgrounds, ages and, experiences to embrace the stereotype—show the whole woman; beyond the superficial factors that people use to judge her.

About “Women Speak”
The event is a presentation of readings published in WOAP’s anthology “Women Speak, Volume Seven,” a lavish mix of female voices— northern, central, southern, Affrilachian, LQBTQ, Asian-Appalachian, those differently-abled, emerging and well established – everyone stepping up to speak the truths of Appalachia.

Poetry, story, song, essay, each a tribute to Appalachian honor, endurance, courage, love of family, community, and the land, providing evidence of how even against the odds Appalachians continue to thrive and stand strong in their convictions, working together to build awareness and overcome marginalization and stereotype.

“Women Speak, Volume Seven” will be available for sale during the event or can be purchased online at www.sheilanagigblog.com.
