Call For Submissions!
We all know March is recognized as Women's History Month in the United States, and across the globe March 8th is recognized as International Women's Day. In the spirit of continuing this sentiment - because She/Folk believes we should honor women each and every day - and expanding it to honor even more women and groups of women - like the ones you might not ever get to read about in history books - we are putting forth the following prompt and calling for submissions to our She/Lore collection:
What woman or women have inspired you in your homes, schools, communities, families, friend groups, places of work, etc.? Did they teach you something new? Did they create something that wowed you? Did they make an impact that you want to tell the world about?
She/Folk believes that these personal histories are incredibly important to tell and that we can all learn something from them.
Please submit your essay to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 6th. Use subject line "Personal women's history submission" and please send as a Word document. Max word count: 800. If you have any questions at all, send over an email! We can't wait to read your stories!
We are a network of individuals who value the power of voice, creation, and collaboration.
We share stories and ideas with each other and the world, support one another in creative endeavors, and work together to be inclusive, intersectional, and bring awareness to women's issues and vitalize women's rights.
We aim to fuel the empowerment of all women-identifying individuals, engage in constructive dialogue about relevant topics, and shed light on the enormous range and many layers of women's experiences.
