Queen's Women of Colour Collective

Who Are We?

Queen’s Women of Colour Collective (QWOCC) strives to provide a supportive community open to discussing issues pertaining to ethnicity, academics, and personal narratives. QWOCC fosters a creative environment for both women of colour and allies to share stories, advice and celebrate diversity within the Queen’s community. QWOCC will utilize social media, blog-based content, and regular on-campus networking events to instill a sense of support and friendship among Queen’s students.

“Who can submit?”

Anyone! You do not have to be a general member to submit to QWOCC’s blog. As long as you are a student at Queen’s you are welcome to submit!

“What can I write about?”

Blog submissions are prompted by our monthly themes which we announce on our social media platforms. Feel like writing something that doesn’t fit our monthly theme? Send it over anyway! Our themes are meant to be used as guides.

“How long should it be?”

Blog posts can be however long you want them to be. Whether it be a poem, a story, or an opinion piece submissions do not have a lower or upper limit.

“When should I submit?”

Submissions following monthly themes should be submitted by the end of the month. For example, if you are planning on submitting for our September theme you should aim to submit by September 30th.

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences.”
