The wider community will also benefit from increased home grown creative works. Most of these beneficiaries will be consulted during the process of developing a strategic plan for the African Women Writer’s Initiative Network. Other initiatives for women writers which were not represented at the Bellagio meeting will be identified for inclusion in the network.
