Leeds Rape Crisis Centre, SARSVL, has issued a call out for submissions of feminist short poems to celebrate feminist art and help raise money. At least 12 original poems will be selected for a ‘Feminist Poem a Month’ calendar to sell as a winter fundraiser, and/or share a selection of the poems submitted from 25th November to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls and the subsequent 16 days of action.

We’re excited to see the breadth of creativity of women, girls and non-binary people, so if you’re a poet (or even if you wouldn’t call yourself one!) we’d love to hear from you.

Submissions from women, girls and non-binary folk who are comfortable with our woman-centred approach
Submissions of short poems. Your poem should be no longer than 10 lines.

We are asking for people to write on any of the following themes:

What a world free from oppression could look like
Women that you admire, respect and love
Female friendship

To submit a poem you can use this form to give us your details and your poem

Submissions will close on Sunday 21st April.

Support After Rape & Sexual Violence (SARSVL) is the dedicated Rape Crisis Centre for all women and girls in Leeds affected by rape and sexual violence.

SARSVL is a feminist organisation that supports all women and girls in Leeds who have been affected by sexual violence of any kind at any time in their lives (that is important, nearly half the women we speak to are adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA)). We promote their needs and rights and work towards the elimination of sexual violence.
