VerSIS(versus): A digital poetry publication

VerSIS uses poetry as an outlet to discuss topics that challenge social norms. We believe that acceptance should not be based on comparable beliefs but contrasting thoughts. By providing a platform for women of color to express themselves, we seek to highlight the stories and thoughts of women who are passionate about their craft and want their voice to be heard.

VerSIS is looking for women of color who write poetry, free verse or spoken word to participate in a monthly online publication where a different topic is chosen each month. Topics will be announced on the 1st of each month and writers will have until the 15th to submit their work. New publications will be posted on the last Friday of each month (this may change based on the number of inquires.)

If you identify as a women of color who would like to be apart of VerSIS, Please email with your name, a short bio, your instagram handle or website (for marketing purposes), and a minimum of 2 samples of your work.
