WOMEN WRITE AND MAKE ART FROM BEHIND, ACROSS AND THROUGH THE FENCES OF AUSTRALIA'S IMMIGRATION DETENTION INDUSTRY. 

*Writing Through Fences* is publishing an anthology of women's art and writing. 

This anthology is made up of work by women who have been writing and making art from behind, across and through the fences of Australia's immigration detention network in Sydney, Melbourne, Indonesia, Perth, Pakistan, Nauru and Brisbane.  

Seldom do we hear a variety of women's voices affected by Australia's immigration industry.  Through this project we come together to claim a creative space. 

We need donations so that we can collate, type set, publish and print this anthology.  We would like to include some coloured plates of art work as well as the standard black and white.

After publishing costs all monies from sales of these books go to the authors/artists.

We are looking to finalise the anthology for printing in August.

We appreciate any donation that you can offer and thank you for supporting our work.

Leave your email address and we will keep you up to date with, and send you samples of, our project.

*Writing Through Fences* is a group made up of people who are, or have been, directly affected by Australia's immigration detention industry along with a few non-refugee supporters.   We are unfunded and totally run by volunteers.  You can visit our website at http:www.writingthroughfences.org
