What does it mean to you to RISE?
How have you risen in your life?
And how can we all help one another rise as women?
Our very first She Rose anthology centres on this theme. Use this as inspiration to guide you wherever your heart takes you.
Write about a time you got knocked down, and lifted yourself back up. Write about a woman rising from the ashes, and being born again. Write about wolves howling at full moon, and the witches they could not burn. Write about loss, love, fear, healing, courage, power, grace, and everything in between. Write from the beat of your heart, and the depths of your soul.
We are seeking submissions from women in the form of personal stories, essays, poems, photography & illustrations.
These should relate to the theme of the book which is, RISE.
Each person may submit up to 3 pieces for consideration.
Word count: Each piece should be minimum 100 words – maximum 1200 words.
Please send your submission in the body of an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with “SHE ROSE 2021 ANTHOLOGY – (YOUR STORY/PROJECT TITLE)” as the subject line.
