Editorial Focus

Adanna publishes work about women’s issues or topics. Submissions for artwork, poetry, essay, and short fiction are accepted by both women and men. 

Tips From the Editor

To have a better understanding of the mission and style of Adanna, we enourage you to purchase a PDF of our last issue. We charge a nominal fee. We are open to both emerging writers and seasoned writers; we are looking for topics that speak to the women's experience.
