DEADLINE for Submissions: Themed Readings to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021!

March 1, 2021 at midnight

This year, to mark International Women’s Day on March 8, 2021, WANL asked its members to write a piece that focuses on women (and women-identifying folx) and their role, contributions, and meaning in their lives.This is a paid opportunity, open to WANL Members only.

WANL will be selecting THREE readings to be premiered on March 8.
Selected readers are to be paid $150.00 each for their contribution.

We asked you to think about…
The women who inspire you.
The women who helped you feel like or act like a better person.
The women we look up to as role models.
The women in your family. The women at your workplace.
The women who survived and the women we’ve lost.
The women who smashed the glass ceiling and kept reaching farther.
The women who smashed the patriarchy and refused to be silenced.
The LGBTQ women, Indigenous women, and BIPOC women fighting for equality.
The women who improved the lives of their fellow women, through advocacy, invention, ingenuity and bravery.

And we want you to invoke their strong spirits in your writing!
Applicants were asked to submit a recorded video featuring a reading of an original piece that focuses on women in some way. This writing prompt is purposefully generic, leaving applicants with ample room for creativity and exploration. 

Videos will be premiered on the WANL Facebook Page at 7 p.m. on International Women’s Day on March 8.
