Barbara Field, the OpEd Project’s San Diego Regional Manager, was recently featured on the front page of the San Diego Union-Tribune for her outstanding volunteer work as a mentor for the Afghan Women’s Writing Project (AWWP).
Karla Peterson’s article, “Afghanistan Stories: Written at risk, edited with care,” discusses Barbara’s mentor position with an organization that creates safe writing workshops and allows women to tell their stories through poems and essays. Women in Afghanistan are paired with mentors and they discuss their writing daily in online classrooms.
On the OpEd front, Barbara also organized a successful OpEd Poject Program in San Diego last week!
Congratulations and thanks to Barbara and the AWWP for their inspiring work.
