**Submissions are currently being taken for October 2017 onwards**
First of all, thank you for enjoying Feminartsy enough to want to contribute to the website!
One of the key philosophies of Feminartsy is that writers should be paid for their work. As a not-for-profit, fledgling site run by volunteers, the rates of pay will fluctuate based on what’s in the coffers, but payment will be made no matter what.
So the good news is, if you’re published on Feminartsy, you work will be recognised with a financial payment as well as the ‘exposure’ and ‘experience’ that so many other websites boast as benefits. Currently, we can offer a flat rate of $50 per piece.
However, due to limited time to read submissions, Feminartsy is not taking unsolicited submissions of completed work at this time. Please pitch your idea directly to Zoya first, before sending a draft.
Writing will primarily be commissioned directly – but we’re still keen to hear from writers and artists who would like to contribute to the site.
What to include in your pitch:
Please make sure that your pitch includes:
- An outline of your idea, including the proposed structure/narrative arc
- A sample of your writing
What we’re looking for:
PLEASE NOTE: We are not currently taking submissions of poetry at this time. We will notify you on this page when we reopen submissions.
- Personal essays
- Lengthy feature/think pieces
Feminartsy does NOT publish:
- News articles
Pitches will be assessed on a rolling basis.
