he Association of Caribbean Women Writers and Scholars (ACWWS) was founded in 1994 to continue the momentum sparked by the 1988 Caribbean Women Writers Conference organized by Prof. Selwyn Cudjoe (then of Wellesley College), and thereby advance creative writing and critical work about Caribbean women. Through conferences, symposiums, author interviews, panel discussions, workshops, and other forums (both face to face and virtual), the ACWWS celebrates and circulates the literature, orature and multidisciplinary research by and about Caribbean cis and trans women, gender, and sexuality; provides opportunities for critical examinations of this body of work; increases awareness of the Caribbean diaspora; creates partnerships and collaborations with other like-minded organizations; and fosters a climate of cooperation among linguistic and cultural groups of the Caribbean.
