The Association of Caribbean Women Writers and Scholars (ACWWS) was formed in 1994 to continue the momentum sparked by the 1988 Caribbean
Women Writers and Scholars conference organized by Prof. Selwyn Cudjoe (then of Wellesley College), and thereby advance works by and about
Caribbean women. The ACWWS celebrates and circulates the literature, orature and multidisciplinary research about Caribbean women, provides
a forum for critical examinations of this body of work, increases awareness of the Caribbean diaspora, and fosters a climate of cooperation
among all linguistic and cultural groups of the Caribbean.
In January 2015, ACWWS initiated a reorganization process headed by ACWWS President Meredith Gadsby, ACWWS Vice
President Giselle Anatol, and members of the Executive Committee.
The crown of the renewed Association will be its revamped website and Facebook page. Both will serve as forums that will feature updates on our
next conference as well as ACWWS’s award-winning journal, MaComère: Journal of the Association of Caribbean Women Writers and Scholars.
During this restructuring process, current members as well as those interested in joining ACWWS are encouraged to contact the President Giselle
Anatol at email@example.com or navigate to http://www.acwws.org for more information.
