Call for Art and Writing by Young Women

GirlSpoken invites you to join voices with young women across Canada and contribute to a book of writings and artwork on growing into ourselves...

What We're Looking For:

We are looking for bold pieces from 13-19 year old girls and young women on the challenges, big moments and sweet joys of growing up. GirlSpoken invites you to speak your mind, to explode with colour or to capture photos that reveal what you're all about. We want to hear from you about what makes you who you are, what you value, how you express yourself and the things you have experienced. What do you want to tell the world about what it's like to be you? We are looking for non-fiction pieces that are inspired by your own life.

The Nitty Gritty:

Your piece can take the form of a piece of writing or a self portrait in the medium of your choice (photography, drawing, painting, collage etc.).


Written submissions should be based on your own experiences and can take any form (stories, poetry, rants, ramblings, journal entries, lyrics, letters, spoken word pieces, etc.).


We are looking for self-portraits that are a creative expression of who you are. Your self-portraits can be in any medium (photography, drawing, painting, collage, etc.). Each self portrait must include a short paragraph on what the piece means to you. Any artwork that is 3-dimensional or larger than a letter sized (81/2 x 11") sheet of paper, should be submitted as a photograph of the piece.
