Our writers take us to the places and events that changed what they believe in, changed how they see their place in the world, and changed them. Through their storytelling, they change us. We want powerful nonfiction prose written by women about the moments that segment life into before and after.

At Six Hens, the stories that we are most drawn to are the ones that appear like crocuses in the aftermath of the snowstorm because it is those stories that offer us better understanding of ourselves. We encourage writers to read some pieces from any issue to better familiarize themselves with what we're looking for. Finally, submissions should be about 2000 words and previously unpublished.

We seek pieces with a point of view that might not be easily published elsewhere (hence Sisyphus with his rock and his hill). While we aren’t trying to convert opposing points of view, we do hope to offer important contributions that will further discussion and even sway some people. We are looking for a high level of craft, the specific rather than the general, the instance that makes a powerful statement rather than broad political diatribe.
