submission guidelines

“A feminist is any woman who tells the truth about her life.”

-Virginia Woolf

*Submissions are closed for our Winter 2021 issue, they will open again February 13, 2021- April 15, 2021 for our Spring 2021 issue*

We’re looking for zesty, raw, celebrations, lamentations, and observations of womanhood.

Please send us short prose, poetry, songs, and visual and performance art (no more than 1,000 words please, but if it’s a magnificent 1,001 words we’ll reconsider). Yes, performance art. It’s 2020, literary journals do that now. Stir us. Make us gasp with laughter or blink away tears. Call us to riot. Please do not send us the tepid, obvious, or cliche.

If you’re sending us your poetry, please do send us an mp3 file of you (or whoever you want) reading it.

Send your offerings as Word Docs (Times New Roman, 12pt font, if you please), mp3, and/or mp4 files to
