This Mother’s Day, let us #BreakTheBias and prove through our stories that a mother can be any person, not gender specific,  who can nurture, care and foster growth in another person. Let us celebrate ‘motherhood’ as an emotion.

  3. Previously published or plagiarized works will not be considered for publication on the Penmancy site. The writer of such content stands a chance to be disqualified for the next Penmancy event.
  4. Submission to be sent between May 3, 2022 8 am IST and May 7, 2022 8 pm IST.
