Welcome to our Online Journal

redrosethorns began with a simple core belief, that feminism is about empowerment. Through articles, poetry, interviews, art, and stories of all kinds, we intend to empower others to share their voices. All in the hopes of inspiring, motivating, educating and connecting our global community. Our voices are our most powerful tool that can be used to contribute to a society that celebrates diversity, and inclusion.

What topics can you share?

redrosethorns invites you to submit your unpublished writing on the following subjects:

  • mental health

  • self-care

  • gender/sexuality

  • empowerment

We encourage your imagination to run freely with these topics, and we accept writing in any genre and any style, so long as they are centred around these discussions. 

*Please read the guidelines before submission. Any work that does not meet our guidelines will automatically be disqualified.
