Around 2300 BCE, on the banks of the Euphrates river in ancient Mesopotamia, Enheduanna, a Princess and Priestess, signed her name to a hymn in devotion to Innana, Goddess of sex, war, justice, and political power. In doing so, Enheduanna became the first known author to sign their name to a piece of work, declaring herself the creator of this composition which she brought into the world. In the following pages, you will see work by modern feminine creators in mediums ranging from poetry to visual arts to culinary arts and more. With this zine, we pay tribute to Enheduanna who boldly declared with every piece she signed: I, Enheduanna, brought this creation from nothing into something beautiful to share. In these pages, we hope you’ll find joy, inspiration, and beauty. Thank you for reading!
