UnSilenced Woman Press was conceived out of the womb of a sista who asks, “Why be silent, when now is the time to speak out!”
This women-centered press exists to cultivate the creativity and voice of girls and women of African descent, by publishing emerging and established writers. Our aim is to publish poetry, spoken word, dramatic works, memoirs, historical documents, fiction, art work and essays that embrace the many dimensions of being a girl and woman.
It is important for us not only to reach the scholarly reader, but we place an equally high priority on making our published works accessible and applicable to that girl or woman on the corner, on the block, in the confines of corporate’s front desk, on lock down in the prison industrial complex, and to those surviving day-to-day.
