The Wide Shore (TWS) is a global literary journal dedicated to connecting women’s voices. TWS is committed to publishing poetry that reveals and unearths that which has been hidden, masked, buried, or unexpressed. TWS invites newly translated works by women whose voices have yet to reach wider shores.
In these painful times of ongoing struggle and oppression, we feel poetry’s necessity. As Gwendolyn Brooks wrote, we are each other’s/ harvest:/ we are each other’s/ business:/ we are each other’s/ magnitude and bond.
With appreciation for this community, for poetry, and for all that continues to be possible.
