A vivid, powerful anthology of poems by and for young women, giving voice to a new generation of international poets, with themes of feminism, empowerment, resilience, confidence, and integrity.

SMEAR: Poems For Girls presents a curated, all-female lineup of poets from different countries and addresses issues of trauma, survivorship, independence, and body positivity. As described on "The poetry collection celebrating the imperfect, frank woman, SMEAR is chronicling the voices of women, unapologetically confronting self-image, body autonomy and our relationships with each other."

The first North American edition of SMEAR will include an expanded selection of poems from international woman poets.

"A powerful and sincere anthology of pieces from many incredible female poets. The poems here cover a range of important themes and strike the heart on every page." (Goodreads)
