Wild Women Press is delighted to annoucne that we are one of the "100 Communities" chosen by the Post Office (UK) to receive the 2018 #CommonUnity Award. As a grassroots community group founded almost 20 years ago, we’re very proud that Wild Women continues to be a space of celebration, and we can often be found on the fells or beside a fire, telling stories and laughing loudly! We intend to use this prize money to run a series of Wild Women Workshops in Cumbria, as well as to publish a new, very special collection of poetry, to mark the group's 20th anniversary. More updates to follow - don't forget to check our FB and Twitter too...!
