Woman Scream International Poetry Festival

Woman Scream International Poetry Festival

Woman Scream International Poetry Festival is part of the social mission of the Woman Poets International who also works towards the recognition of unknown talented women poets through their various activities, joint projects, and social networks. The MPI has the support of several cultural and literary institutions of importance that are partners of the events in various countries and cities.

Woman Scream includes activities such as conferences, exhibitions, outdoor activities, poetry readings, contests, and more. The various activities will involve men and women poets’ good-will ambassadors of the MPI movement in different countries and the collaboration of institutions, cultural groups, musicians, and artists who support this beautiful solidary work.

In 2013,Woman Scream is in its third year. Lesotho joined this global event in 2012 by organising a one day event, debate session and online publication of Woman Scream poems.

The festival happens through out the month of March in all participating countries and blogs.
