Our fiction must have a female protagonist. The writing must be engaging with a unique approach to storytelling and a distinctive authorial voice and style. We want works that explore realistic yet fascinating women tackling universal themes and subjects on a human level or taking an amusing stroll through our crazy world. Our nonfiction interests include feminism, history, nature, environment, social issues, biographies, autobiography, memoir, archaeology, anthropology, multicultural, spiritual, literary criticism, and women’s and gender studies. All from a female perspective.

We are very selective, so take the time to read our author guidelines and look at our most recent books to get an idea of what we're currently collecting. We’re currently interested in fiction that is entertaining, funny, quirky that can touch on serious issues and yet written in a more positive style. Show your writing sense of humor or sly wit.

We’re also actively seeking nonfiction by women, about women, and/or from a female perspective, including biography, historical, the arts, the sciences, nature and nature guides, feminism, cooking, gardening, travel and travel guides, ecology, politics, how-to, and sports.

It all depends on the work and not on the author's bio.

We believe in supporting the creative endeavors of the writers of the world. We believe literature serves an existential function and its value to humanity is beyond measure. Therefore, we will always remain open to the possibility that an individual work may take us beyond the boundaries known today. We seek to publish work that reflects these values, offers new insights into the human condition, finds beauty in the garish, and that when we read it, we want to read it again and again. We want to fold an issue closed and find ourselves richer for knowing the words contained within.

Please follow our guidelines. Please send us your best. Please don't send work with gratuitous violence or sex in it. We nominate our authors for various awards. We host fee free submission days every reading period.
