Join a panel of remarkable women discussing the Untold: Write Afghanistan project that provides a platform for extraordinary voices telling their original, vital and unexpected stories.

Untold is a development programme for female writers in marginalised communities, particularly in areas of conflict and post-conflict. Through this project, writers who are currently unable to tell their stories beyond their immediate communities have opportunities to develop their craft, share their stories with wider communities in their own languages and reach new audiences through translation into English, across the globe.
