As part of a 2018 collaboration, we are asking for submissions from women* about their experiences in the form of short stories, poems, and artwork for a new book entitled ‘Womb with a View’. This book will be a celebration of successes, a lament of trauma, a hope for the future, various ponderings from the past, and a miscellaneous assortment of tales and musings.
The intention of the book is to cement a cache of learnings to pass onto one another as a point of discussion, an exploration, a fuck you to the patriarchy, and as an honouring and hungering for greater awareness and support of female sexuality, spirituality, power and potential.
It is also a catharsis. A release of the old to make way for the new. An introduction to subversion, taboo, rage, wantonness, hysteria, and love. A love for ourselves and our bodies that shakes the foundations of ignorance, oppression, silence and shame. A love that is the cornerstone of a new feminism that seeks freedom for all, that gives a voice to the voiceless, and that will accept nothing less than brazen mutiny. It is the declaration of a brave new world and it is a world that will need all of our stories and all of our strength.
*women is an inclusive term for all people who have or currently identify as female or non-male
