Women in Writing Programme
Too often, the voices of women on issues of conflict and security are marginalised or go unheard, despite the critical role they play in conflict, development, peacebuilding and international security. We want to support you to write your own chapter in the history of conflict.
The team at Strife is extremely proud to present the first year of our Women in Writing Programme.
Strife is an internationally recognised blog and peer-reviewed academic journal, led by doctoral and graduate researchers based in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London. We study all aspects of ‘conflict’, combining political, historical, literary, and philosophical approaches to conflict to provide thought-provoking and unique perspectives for our readers.
We have over 3.5 million readers a year, with strong engagement from governmental and academic institutions.
The women in the Women in Writing Programme, are assigned a mentor who helped guide them through every step of the writing process—from the generation of ideas, to editing, to publication.
A companion on their year-long journey, the mentors will be their open door to the world of writing, so that the women will be able to confidently walk through and shine on their own. Later, they may then lend a hand to the women following in their footsteps.
The mentees in the Women in Writing Programme will write two pieces for Strife Blog, as well as be part of exclusive events and roundtable discussions, as well as have the opportunities to learn from experts in the field. It will be a unique opportunity for networking, community building, and growing their confidence as writers.
