Legal guardians submitting poems thereby give Women In Parenthesis permission to publish their child’s work in internal and external publications, newsletters, presentations, websites, social media and local/national newspaper articles. The work itself will always remain the intellectual property of the young person. We will always obtain consent from the young person in addition to this.

Teachers submitting work on behalf of a pupil thereby give Women In Parenthesis permission to contact them should further permissions from the child’s legal guardian be needed. For example, in order to publish the child’s work in the manner set out in the previous paragraph, or for any of the uses described in the remainder of these terms.
