My dear Kabul give me your hand, put your head on my shoulder and don’t be afraid, don’t think you are alone, we are here for you.

In August 2021 a women’s creative writing group in Afghanistan shared news of political turmoil and the Fall of Kabul. These women were in the process of publishing a short-story collection when their world was turned upside down by the Taliban. In staying connected via WhatsApp messages, they established a lifeline; a vital space to keep their creativity alive, support each other and bear witness to the events unfolding around them.

My Dear Kabul is their story, and a collective diary of a year living under the Taliban. As they watched cities fall, schools close, families change and freedoms disappear, they shared stories of chaos, protest and flight. As a group, they reflected on the scope of female experience: mothers and doctors, students and teachers, those who had lived under the Taliban, and those who couldn’t imagine it. In sharing their stories, they created a place of community and strength in the face of terror.
