The purpose of the 19th International Festival of Women Composers is to be an international crossroads for networking among women composers and their advocates.

The only requirement for the content of your proposal is that the music you wish to perform or discuss has to be composed by a woman.

  7. accompanied by a cover page stating your name, address, institution (if applicable), phone number, and email address; or send the information via email with attachments (.rtf, .pdf, or .doc)

We also welcome the submission of papers and round-table discussions which may focus on theory, research, or practice developed from a wide spectrum of topics in women's studies in music.
