Do You Hear My Accent

Journal of the LRC



Basta! is a project that begun in Santiago, Chile by Ediciones AsteriĆ³n a few years ago. A group of women writers wanted to use the power of words to try and stop violence against their gender in Chile, or at the very least, bring more awareness to it. Over time, the project has grown to other countries and continents and now, it has come to the U.S. We are currently working on the U.S. anthology and we want to invite you to participate.

Send us 3 short stories (minifiction) of no more than 150 words each on the topic of violence again women (English or Spanish) and a short bio. We are reaching out to Latinas in the U.S. to contribute to our anthology and we would like you to be one of the women highlighted in this book.
Each contributor will received 2 copies of the book in appreciation for their participation in the anthology.
