UNCERTAIN GIRLS IN
UNCERTAIN TIMES

poetry, essential advice and practical know-how for women aiming to set the world on fire

THE PROJECT

Uncertain Girls in Uncertain Times is an anthology of inspiration and encouragement for the next generation of thinkers, problem solvers, peacemakers, and creators of all kinds. It is a collection of poetry paired with reflections and life lessons from those who have the wisdom to impart, history to share, and hope for the future. 

We live in an uncertain world.  A world that can sometimes seem as broken as it is beautiful.  Those launching into adulthood voice this paradox again and again: the frustration and despair that makes them want to set the world on fire — to lay waste to it whatever the consequence; and the joy and excitement that makes them want to set the world on fire in a completely different way — to imagine deeply, to create bravely, and to do something truly remarkable with their lives.

Navigating between this hope and disheartenment isn’t easy, especially when you’re about to start your adult life.  That is why we are casting our net wide for this anthology, looking for contributors who reflect the ways we learn to trust our inner authority, find meaning, and set the world on fire.  

There are thousands of inspirational stories out there, and we want to hear yours.
