I’m so thrilled to share my first call out for submissions as an Assistant Poetry Editor of Mookychick, a UK based feminist literary journal. We are celebrating International Women’s Day with a themed call for submissions that resonate with freedom, choice, and equality. The submission for the IWD will be later considered for e-book anthology called “The Medusa Project”.I’m really thankful to the EIC Magda Knight, Poetry Editor Juliette Van der Molen and the entire team of warm and brilliant Mooky team for supporting me.
We want you to help us celebrate the 100th anniversary of this powerful day. Mookychick is calling all the writers of all genders to submit writing which resonates with the feeling of freedom, choice, and equality.
An ode to amazing, strong, brave, gentle, unapologetic, unabashed, caring, independent, fierce and loving women in our lives on Women’s international day!!
Be like a waterfall roaring and empowering gushing down with strength’ and the beauty for all to see Be like a bird a phoenix to rise from the ashes when the world around is trying to crumple you down beneath their feet Be like a firefly A lone warrior carrying the light within Be like a sky endless in your knowledge but still humble to take the sun in Be like a lotus sitting on the mud carrying the light of the enlightenment within the beauty which the heart adores the peace which the soul seeks Be like a gushing river shaping the rocks in your life and infusing the life to those who settles in Be like a mountain standing tall and true to your convictions and never bowing down to the patriarchy Be like a forest a nurturer, a mother or someone who can nullify the existence of naysayers with the heart of fire burning within Be like a mother who nurtures another soul sharing the life from within.
