Today sees the launch of a new writing project: ‘Women of Swansea’.
In collaboration with several like-minded conspirators, I have decided to create a community-based writing project designed to give women in the local Swansea area a forum in which they can speak frankly about the issues that matter most to them.
If you are a woman living in the Swansea area and you would like to help with the running of this project, then please contact Women of Swansea (relevant email address at the bottom of the page).
In the meantime, here are the submission deets:
Women of Swansea is a community writing project designed to give women in the local Swansea area a forum in which their voices can be heard.
We would like women to submit short pieces (200-300 words) about their lives, an experience they’ve had, or on a personal topic of their choice.
No subject is taboo, though we request that women refrain from using offensive or discriminatory language as such submissions are unlikely to be published. We wish for the Women in Swansea writing project to be a safe and inclusive venture for women from all walks of life.
Women of any age, sexual orientation, ability, class, faith, race and ethnicity are welcome to participate.
Spelling and grammar is unimportant. Women can choose to remain anonymous should they wish.
Submissions (with prior permission) shall be posted on our blog: http://www.womenofswansea.wordpress.com with a view to self-publish an anthology of women’s writing in the very near future.
We appreciate your patience whilst we get our blog up and running!
Please email us at: womenofswanseaATgmailDOTcom for further information.
N.B. We would like to stress that this project is designed for women living in the Swansea area, therefore, submissions from men or women outside the City and County of Swansea will not be accepted.
