Women Writing Syria: Resilience, Solidarity, Movement
Call for Submissions
How do Syrian women writers, poets and artists imagine Syria, both before and after the revolution and war? Can we imagine Syria without war? Can Syria – as a site that is at once shared, divided and contested – inspire us to bring it into being through creative writing and arts? Could we make this imagined Syria a concrete reality? How can Syrian women’s narratives and voices be heard?
We invite contributions from Syrian women writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, playwrights and cross-genre writers writing in English, Arabic and Turkish for the forthcoming anthology Women Writing Syria. Visuals by artists are also welcome.
