Submissions

**Submissions are currently being taken for May 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 one person, 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.

However, due to limited time to read submissions, Feminartsy is not taking unsolicited submissions of completed work at this time – that’s both art and writing. 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.

Feminartsy publishes:

  • Memoir
  • Fiction
  • Personal essays
  • Lengthy feature/think pieces
  • Interviews

Feminartsy does NOT publish:

  • Reviews
  • News articles
  • Rants

 

Pitches will be assessed on a rolling basis. 

If you feel that your work will be a good fit for the site, please email your pitch to the below addresses. Please note that due to the large number of pitches received, we are unable to provide feedback on unsuccessful pitches. 
To pitch a piece, email Zoya Patel at editor.feminartsy@gmail.com.
