Please check your E-mail inbox or spam to confirm.

Deadline: GMT 00:00, 30th October 2018.

Person 1: I’m too shy of my skin, broken tooth and my cataract, I’m not proud of myself.

Person 2: I have big scars on my body, I can’t wear swimsuits. So I avoid going to the pool.

Person 3: I am not loved. I’m disabled. So I masturbate when I need sex.

Person 4: I’m gay and I’m scared to be judged. So I hide behind the skin of a heterosexual boy.

Person 5: I know very well that I am not beautiful. I have terrible acne all over my face. I hate my body.

Person 6: I’m obese. I don’t feel great.

Person 7
: My students sometimes think I am their age mates. Often,
people mistake me for a child because of my body. I’m too smallish. I’m
slim and short.
Ghana Writes Literary Group is collecting 70 poems
to inspire the above persons to wear their skins proudly. Poems that

shift the paradigm about beauty and redefine it.
