Women are invited to create and submit any type of work inspired by the theme - a short story, painting, photography, memoir, poetry, a dance or music video, ceramics, even (a photograph of) a piece of knitting! Nothing is ruled out.

At the end of the week we will publish a selection of work. So let your imagination run riot.

The current theme is: How Wild It Was. Submission Deadline: Friday 29 May 2020 @ Noon.
