The League of Professional Theatre Women, through our International Committee, invite women refugees from around the world to share their personal writings for inclusion in our 2018 presentation Writings Of Women Refugees.  We are asking women who either are or were refugees to contribute, in writing form, a brief story of their life before, during and/or after becoming a refugee (from 10 to 350 words). The more detail you can share, the better.  You need not be a professional writer.  All are welcome to participate, including children.

The LPTW will collect your submissions to be curated into a performative presentation to take place in New York City in 2018.

If you are a female refugee and would like to take part by including your words, kindly fill out our submission form and send along with your writing “My Life As a Refugee,” to:


All submitted material and application information will be used only for this project.  If you would like to keep your identity (name/ children’s names/ spouse’s name, etc.) private, please indicate this on your writing submission.
