Donate to enter A Room of Her Own with Bhanu Kapil



I come from a geography

where girls embroider a silence

unfurling quilts of wordlessness

vast like star-studded desert skies.


Their quietude as deep as the space

Where tears are born

High as the walls that keep history in

Gurgling, buoyant ghaghra-clad girls

now untraceable, lost forever.

That’s where I come from.

Enter The Q



We respond to the call of our times and our community to release the confluence of women’s voices – both from our radiant anthology and from newly submitted work – into shared, published WAVES. With no limit to its future possibilities, we are publishing the anthology – piece by piece – in our monthly WAVES publication, and by digitizing all work from the anthology in the format of an online book serialization.

For WAVES, begin here
