Woman Scream: 1st International Poetry by Women Call for Submission

The Woman Scream (Grito de Mujer®) cause, open its first international call for poetry written by women. Woman Scream events have always welcome all gender voices, but to celebrate our 10th anniversary of creation, we will be creating a special edition anthology related to the SCREAM as a mean of expression, from a female point of view.

Woman Scream in its altruistic work that gathers all art during the month of march, to raise awareness about women/girls’ rights and against abuse prevention.

We will be selecting the submitted poems based on quality, relevance to the subject and originality. We hope to receive poetry from women whose words break the silence and reach into the hearts of those who cannot speak up. We are looking for an intimate, personal SCREAM.

This book will be edited by our Rosado Fucsia editorial project, and will be available for printing on demand worldwide through Amazon, if anyone wishes to buy a printed copy as a form of donation to our cause, please feel welcome.
