THE FEM LITERATURE MAG IS AFTER SUBMISSIONS #seanocarolan.com #Writing #Women
Submissions are rolling – always free, always open.
Please wait 3 months before submitting again unless the editor requests to see more of your work.
We encourage thought-provoking works that highlight the personal experiences of women, LGBTQIA individuals, people of color, people with disabilities, and other oppressed creators. We encourage experimental pieces that mix genres and show us something new with structure. If it mixes genres, don’t stress—we’ll figure out where to place it.
We accept works that have been previously published—just note where it was published so we can give credit.
Multiple submissions okay within genre or across genres.
Please note that your work does not have to be explicitly about womanhood, what it means to be disabled, the queer experience, etc. – we simply want work that is representative of a variety of voices and experiences. If you have fully fleshed-out characters from diverse backgrounds that don’t play into stereotypes, we consider it feminist. For more information about what we consider to be feminist writing, please review our philosophy.

WANT YOUR BOOK REVIEWED?
To request that your book be reviewed, please send a query to email@example.com. Include a synopsis and author bio, and query only one book at a time. Not all queries will be pursued. We request that you send us a print copy of the book, unless this is not financially possible; then, a PDF will do. This will be discussed between writer/publisher and our Reviews Editor.
Please allow 1-2 months for a response, possibly less. If you have not heard from us regarding your submission in two months, feel free to inquire to make sure that it hasn’t been lost. Expect it to take anywhere from 2-6 months for your work to be posted on the site. Thank you for your patience!
