And Women is at a crucial stage of its development. It’s
been in existence for 6 years and is gaining in reputation and profile
and, as usual, we’re working hard to develop its activities to ensure
its continued success. We have great plans for 2018: the Year of
Publishing Women and the Centenary of Women’s Suffrage in the UK. But we need
your help to realise these plans.
Words And Women is run by Bel and Lynne in their spare time and
entirely voluntarily. The organisation has no core funds and we are in need of
the most basic of basics in order to continue with our valuable work. We would
like to be able to run a virtual office – which means we could have a
year-round postal address for correspondence and access to meeting rooms – and
to have a brandnew website which will be easier for you to use and which will enable us to
distribute news, tickets and publications quickly and efficiently. A new
website is particularly important for us because we can’t imagine being able to
run our writing competitions and our 2018 plans via blogger. Future sponsorship is also dependent on us
having a more adaptable and attractive website.
Going High IWD 2017
