Punjabi Women’s Writing Group 

‘Apni Prithvi - Sadda Kal’ (Our Planet – Our Tomorrow)

Publication October 2023

To be edited by Kuli Kohli and members of the Punjabi Women’s Writing Group.

We intend to produce an anthology of poetry and prose on the theme of recycling starting from home (a small A5, 32-page pamphlet). This will be showcased with a public performance from the PWWG and participants who would like to share their work from the anthology. 

There will be a performance in each location of the Black Country where workshops have been composed.

To this end poets living in or with strong links to the Black Country are invited to send their work in from 1st August - 8th September. Please do not send after this date.

We’d be interested to see well-crafted contemporary poetry and prose on a variety of subjects and from different perspectives on recycling & reusing and the effects of global warming starting from your own home.

Submission Details:

Submissions are free and should be sent by email as an attachment to: kuli.kohli@hotmail.co.uk  Please make sure your name and contact details are included in your email and on the texts. 

A maximum of 4 poems or up to 25 lines of prose may be sent in. Suitable poetry and prose that’s previously been published will be considered so please give details with the submission.

If you haven’t heard from us by the end of October, you can assume your submission has not been successful. Don’t be downhearted if your work isn’t selected as there’s likely to be much competition. No correspondence will be entered into, however, and the editors’ words are final. 

If your work is accepted, you will be given a free copy of the anthology and invited to participate in a celebratory reading in your area.

We look forward to reading your poetry and prose.

Thank you to our regular members and performers:
