Calling all Female Indian Poets!!

I’m thrilled to share this news from my friend, Candice Louisa Daquin! She has made me aware that she has the pleasure of working with a new publishing company who will be publishing an anthology of Indian Female Poets writing in English beginning later this year. This is in response to the powerful movement toward emancipation and equality by Indian women. And how despite this, they are still having to face issues around inequality, sexual identity, LGBTQ, family violence, overcoming oppression, sexual assault survival and gender identity. This anthology will highlighting the fight for equality Indian women are experiencing, it hopes to help bring awareness to the rest of the world and celebrate the talent of Indian women writing poetry in English.

If you are an Indian female poet and are interested, please email Candice (candicedaquin@gmail.com) There are so many talented female Indian poets I follow on WP, I hope to see you participate! It would be awesome!

Thank you!

From the beginning of humanity, the expression of emotions has driven the poets in our world to write from their hearts. IMO, this piece captures the oppression of women well and the ultimate futility of it as we will always rise. ❤

Undressed Thoughts

the blue ink will spill
her hands untied will write
she will not let it go
until she empties herself from inside

Stitching her mouth would not sew the thoughts inside the fissures, deliberately
created by this proud society in the form of her beloveds whom she once admired with respect.
