Her World is a creative collection of women’s literature from writers around the world and published by Her Place, Any Region. What is Her Place, Any Region and how does Her World support your cause?
Her Place, Any Region is a non profit organization which supports women and their families personally, professionally and emotionally. Through a myriad of resources we help women overcome devastating life circumstances such as homelessness, job loss, divorce and death of a spouse or child.
Our organization supports other benevolent and charitable causes through collaborative efforts. Her World, Creative Collections, is a compilation made up of women’s works from around the the world who have donated their works to support the programs in Her Place, as well as other causes of which they chose.
100% of the profits are donated to charities and benevolent causes.
Her World brings women together through the art eclectic, sharing their experiences, their talents and their hearts. Her World is a glimpse of what Her Place is really about, and why it is so important to have the support for these circumstances women face throughout life that traditional resources lack.
What was the collaboration like with all of the authors to put the compilation together?
Creating Her World started as an idea in 2011. Her Place was already in the works, and through that development we found that these creative women expressed themselves in ways that was unprecedented. The talents these women have come from such a deep place of sincerity and love, and bringing them together in print was powerful.
It was a fun project, and it took a lot of trust from the women to allow us to create this and treat it with the respect it deserves. We started pulling together pieces in 2016, and after a few attempts to complete it, we focused for 4 months straight to finalize it though the end of 2019 into 2020. The women were incredibly patient and were still on board throughout the 4 years.
There are 33 women from around the world featured in Her World, so you can imagine it was quite a project.
The final result was exactly like we imagined it to be, and we are all very happy with how it came together.
If someone wanted to get involved with Her Place, Any Region how would they do that?
Her Place, Any Region, has various programs within it; CreateFam, Glimpses, and Books, Bands, Businesses and Brands. While our primary focus is Glimpses, which is centered around helping women re-establish themselves after devastating life changing circumstances, CreateFam is community/volunteer focused and not gender specific, and Books, Bands, Businesses and Brands is a resource for women with businesses.
People can learn more about all of our programs and contacting us through our website http://www.her-place.org.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
We are currently accepting pieces for our next book: Another Year in Her World. We anticipate it to be released February 2021.
Her Place, Any Region, introduces you to Her World, Creative Collections. Enjoy a literary journey through the experiences, hearts, and minds of 33 women from around the world. Compiled in one single readable book, view life from the eyes of phenomenal female artists and authors in the form of photography, song lyrics, book excerpts, personal life experiences, prose, and poetry. We hope you enjoy this incredibly broad spectrum with which these stories are written, bringing women together to share a glimpse into each other’s lives, during a time unifying the population of women is more important than ever.

Women in literature shape both poetry and prose in unique ways. The experiences they bring with them and the depth to which they feel and are able to express are unmatched. Within the pages of Her World: A Compilation of Women’s Works From Around The World, you will find a vast array of literature, compiled in one anthology and ready for consumption by eager readers the world over. If it is inspiration you seek, Her World delivers. If you are looking for someone who shares your story, there is no doubt the authors within have a shoulder for you.
Her World: A Compilation of Women’s Works From Around The World, an anthology of various types of reading complete with artwork and photography, packs a powerful punch. From the first pages of Her World, readers are taken on journeys of self-discovery and introduced to reflections on trauma and how those events have shaped the writers’ lives. In addition, readers find themselves immersed in a world of strength and advocacy where the very voices of the writers carry weight.
I was most impressed by the variety of text within the anthology; it captures readers’ interest from the beginning and never wavers throughout. Each and every voice, no matter the length or type of writing, stands out as bold and resilient. From stories of traumatic childhood events to cancer diagnoses and seizure disorders, each and every author and poet stands tall in the end as an individual with a story and voice worthy of being heard.
Much can be learned from the journeys of each of these women. While not every poem and story is necessarily autobiographical, there is an intense feeling of life experience that emanates from each. Relating to the authors’ works will be unavoidable. They are all of us.
There is a sense of empowerment that rises from each and every selection. While some can be triggering for readers, the authors’ intent is clear, and the cathartic effects are strong. I recommend Her World: A Compilation of Women’s Works From Around The World to anyone looking for a different take on empowering women. Looking at the journey of women via their own life experiences, their prose and poetry, and their artwork is as enlightening as it is powerful. This is a collection of artists that should not be missed.
