CALL FOR ENTRY: Vweta Chadwick Poetry Prize 2022

To honor and celebrate the life of Vweta Chadwick, the Vweta Chadwick Poetry Prize is calling for submissions from female poets only.

This is the first edition of the Poetry Prize, hence we are expecting entries from females, who desire to strengthen topics of woman resilience, gender equality, and inclusion. Poems can also reflect on solutions to challenges impacting women and girls locally and globally.

Persons with disabilities are strongly advised to enter this prize contest.
