Calling women campaigners

Campaigning Voices

We are looking for real-life accounts from women across the UK who have taken part in an inspirational action or campaign local, national or international. These stories will be compiled in an anthology and published in 2014 by Honno Press.

Whether you occupied a tree at Newbury, walked to Greenham, stood up against discrimination or helped save a hospital, we would love to hear from you. We would also love to hear your recommendations of other women whose stories you believe should be included.

What inspired you to get involved? What was your experience of the campaign/action? How did it affect you and your family? And how did it change you? Some stories will take the form of personal essays; others will be based on interviews. So if you are not a confident writer, but you have a powerful story to tell, please get in touch.

We need a one-page summary describing the kind of campaign you were involved in, where it took place (and where you are from), the year(s) it took place and your email address. We are happy to preserve your anonymity. Let us know if you would prefer to be interviewed.

Please submit your summary to by 31st March 2013. We will select around twenty stories, ensuring that we get the right mix of issues, experiences, ages, etc.

If your story has been selected we will ask you either to write a longer piece (deadline 30 June), or to discuss interview dates. We will reply to all submissions. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Editors: Angharad Penrhyn Jones (campaigner, film-maker and writer) and Helena Earnshaw (former editor at OneWorld.net, writer for Big Issue Cymru and involved in McSpotlight and peace campaigns in Wales.)

Honno Welsh Women's Press was founded in 1986 by a group of women who felt that Welsh women needed a voice. The start up money was raised through crowd funding, with contributions from over 400 women across Wales. Honno has published more than a hundred titles, including twenty-eight anthologies of Welsh women's writing.
