The Women Writers Route has been certified by the European Institute for Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe. The Women Writers Route is the first of the 48 Council of Europe Cultural Routes to be based in Slovenia.
The Women Writers Cultural and Tourism Route was presented at the meeting of the Governing Board of the Council of Europe’s Extended Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes, which will take the final decision on the award of the Council of Europe Cultural Route certificates to this year’s candidates in the coming weeks.
Members of the Women Writers Route Association from seven countries met at the general meeting. They approved the Association’s bodies, took note of its previous activities and fundamental documents, and adopted the work programme for the next three-year period. Their first task is to prepare and submit the application for the certification Cultural Route of the Council of Europe.
The volume Defiant Trajectories: Mapping out Slavic Women Writers Route brings six academic papers on women writers from Montenegro, Croatia, Poland, Russia, Serbia and Slovenia. The publishers of the papers from the conference dedicated to women writers are the association Women Writers Route and Forum of Slavic Cultures.
