#SisterPoets July Theme: Freedom

Do you write poetry? Join us in creating #SisterPoets, a monthly series of poems by sisters. 

Each month, sisters are encouraged to write a poem on one spiritual theme, to be a part of a monthly collection published in our e-newsletter, on our website and social media platforms.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Poems must be original, never-before-published, and be on theme!
  • Poems must be written by current Giving Voice participants (Catholic sisters in canonical congregations under 50)
  • Please don’t send poems longer than 40 lines  
  • Publication is at the discretion of the poetry editors.  

July Theme: Freedom 

Please submit your July poem by June 15th to Giving Voice’s Communications Coordinator, at

We will begin publishing #SisterPoets in June, 2018
