Sakhi Call for Poets & Writers – DEADLINE EXTENDED!

Sakhi for South Asian Women is excited to announce our call for poets and writers for an upcoming reading in collaboration with Interference Archive in Brooklyn on November 9th, 2017.

Interference Archive is an open stacks archival collection of social movements established in 2011. Sakhi is excited to collaborate with Interference Archive in conjunction with their current exhibition, “Take Back the Fight: Resisting Sexual Violence from the Ground Up”, which focuses on organized responses to gender and sexual violence, highlighting the ways individuals and communities have developed creative and powerful grassroots and non-institutional justice and healing practices.

We are seeking poets and writers for a reading in the exhibition space on the evening of November 9th, 2017. We are looking to feature poets and writers whose work deals explicitly with feminism, gender, sexual violence, healing, and resistance.

If you’re interested in being featured in this reading, please email Sakhi volunteer Sazia Afrin at sazia.afr@gmail.com with links to your website and work and an attachment of the piece you’d like to share by Friday, October 20th, 2017. Writers will have the opportunity to sell chapbooks and other merchandise at the event. Women, queer, trans, and gender nonbinary poets and writers of color strongly encouraged to apply!
