Call for Submissions – Behind every war there are good women: An Exhibition.

Date: 18 June 2012

In the lead up to the centenary commeration of the Gallipoli landings, Australian and New Zealand female poets are invited to submit their work for inclusion in an exhibition to be called Behind every war there are good women.

Interpretation is up to you, the writer, but the principal aim of this exhibition is to present a diversity of views, ideas and perspectives from women about women and the commemorations and anniversaries of Australia’s and New Zealand’s military conflicts together with the emotions these evoke. To achieve this, a diversity of poets is required; from those well known in the literary world to others whose poetry may only be known to family and friends.

Up to 20 poems from across Australia and New Zealand will be selected for this Exhibition. All poems will be considered for the 100 Years from Gallipoli Poetry Project’s publication and may be entered in its Prize where prize winners will be published and share a prize pool of $5,000.

For more information, please go to: Behind every war there are good women.

Further information can be sought from the Co-ordinating Editor P.O. Box 170 Deloraine Tasmania.
