Publishing Stories of Underrepresented Voices
We are living in transformative times. People are finding ways to make their voices heard and some are learning that they are activists, when they never thought of themselves that way before.
Something happened and made you want to get involved in transforming your organization, neighborhood, community, state, or country. You decided to speak up for something you care about, and did so through words, images, or actions. Whether you worked alone or joined a group in order to fight for change--we want to hear your story.
Or, maybe this is the first time you are speaking out about an issue. Maybe you are finally ready to share your experience, to begin a dialogue about the topic.
We seek short stories, poems, essays, and creative nonfiction that capture your journey, work, and/or goals regarding your activism.
Submissions should be no more than 2,500 words and not previously published. Email in Word doc or pdf format to musewritecommunity [at] yahoo.com by October 15, 2019. Indicate the category (listed above) in your email subject line. Include a 50-word bio describing your professional background and/or reason for writing this piece. You will receive a response by mid-January 2020.
