Senseisha: Memoirs of A Caribbean Woman  is a groundbreaking anthology seeking creative, non-fiction stories embracing the Caribbean female sexual experience.  It is a collaboration of getWrite! and The Ev-O!-lution.  Editors are looking for the following themes:

  • Virginity/ First Time Experiences
  • Coming Out Stories
  • Love And Intimacy
  • Overcoming Abuse
  • Embracing The Taboo

SUBMISSION HIGHLIGHTS

  • Authors must be at least eighteen years old to submit to the anthology.
  • The anthology is open to women of Caribbean origins, whether they reside in the Caribbean or elsewhere.
  • Only one submission of original, unpublished non-fiction story/memoir (1200 – 3000 words) will be accepted from a single author. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but editors should be notified immediately if a submission is accepted elsewhere.
  •  Selected submissions will be used in public promotions and readings of the anthology.
  •  Since sexuality is a controversial topic,  writers reserve the right to remain anonymous and may use a pseudonym if they wish.

The Publishers, Shakirah Bourne of getWrite!.com and Juliette Maughn of Ev-o-lution indicated they will be launching the anthology in 2013.

Seawoman’s 2 cents:  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED  -You MUST watch the brief but tantalizing promo available on Youtube above which is sure to spark you. The Publishers are responsive and organized.  Senseisha is more than an anthology; it is becoming a movement empowering Caribbean women.
