We are looking for complex stories, poems, and essays with a strong female point of view. Our focus is on literary work. We love unexpected poetic language and a bit of magic realism. We welcome all authors and their words with one caveat in mind — if you can sum up your female character in one line (or worse yet: one word), our publication is probably not for you.

We are a small magazine with volunteer readers yet we are committed to compensating writers for their work. We pay authors $15 per published piece in the quarterly journal. This in no way reflects the value of the author’s work but merely the amount we are able to pay from submission fees.

All writers are welcome to submit. All work must be submitted using submittable. Email or mail submissions will not be reviewed. A limited number of no-fee submissions will be available for each issue to enable those with financial hardship.
