Now Accepting Essay Submissions for ‘Publish Her Anthology: Better Together’

Submit your essay for a chance to be published in a Publish Her book!

Women have gathered for thousands of years. Frequently in circles, often around a fire, women have come together to tell stories, teach, worship, celebrate and mourn. We have gathered to collect and trade food and materials. This gathering has been critical to our survival and has ensured knowledge about various traditions, cultures, lands and people has been passed on from one generation to the next.

Throughout history, women have been persecuted for gathering. Despite this oppression, we have continued to find ways to harness the power of coming together. We gather to exchange thoughts on politics, religion, art, literature, music and relationships. We campaign and march and collectively tackle issues large and small. We share wisdom, inspiration and encouragement. We are better together.
