Call for Submissions: Audre Lorde

Stirred Press is seeking submissions of poetry and artwork on the theme of AUDRE LORDE for the third zine in our 2016 series.

We would particularly welcome submissions from BAME and/or queer writers for this issue.

You may use Audre Lorde’s life, poems, or the themes in her work in any way you want as a starting point for your submission.

The zine is produced using a black and white photocopier so please keep that in mind when submitting artwork. Please also keep in mind the length restrictions of the zine format – shorter poems work best.

Deadline for submissions is Friday 25th March.

Profits from our 2016 zine series will go towards paying the travel costs of our guest artists.

Please email your submissions to – we look forward to reading them!


If you need some inspiration, take a look at our WORKSHOP with activities based on Audre’s work.

Our monthly event is on at Three Minute Theatre in Manchester on Monday 28th March. With our guests and open micers we will celebrate the life and works of Audre Lorde. Click here for the Facebook event and we hope to see you there!


The Stirred quad is formed of Rebecca Audra Smith, Anna Percy, Jasmine Chatfield and Lenni Sanders.
