The South Asian Women's Creative Collective celebrates it's 15th anniversary


The South Asian Women’s Creative Collective (SAWCC) is a nonprofit arts organization dedicated to the advancement, visibility, and development of emerging and established South Asian women artists and creative professionals by providing a physical and virtual space to profile their creative and intellectual work across disciplines.

They sustain a strong literature focus, which of course piques our interest.

They celebrate their 15th anniversary this year and are calling for literary and visual art submissions. Their literary specifics: 

Literature:
We are interested in ‘zines, chapbooks, monographs, fiction, nonfiction, poetry, anthologies, etc. authored or edited by South Asian women. After the Queens Museum exhibition, these items will go into our archive.
Submissions - post:
- One physical copy of each title, must be submitted by author/editor of the work
We also invite original haiku, which may be inspired by SAWCC artists or may (loosely) fit the mission and work of SAWCC. Selected pieces will be printed on vinyl and presented on the walls of the exhibition.
Submissions - emailed as attachments:
- No more than 3 haiku pieces per person, submitted in a Word document
