Feels Blind Literary welcomes submissions of short fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, plays, and art from new and emerging writers and artists who identify as women.
Play submissions for Issue #3 are open until January 16, 2020 and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are accepting artwork through January 23rd. This will be a special playwrighting issue.
Submissions for Issue #4 are open until May 1, 2020 and should be sent to email@example.com. Please put in the subject line the category to which you're submitting.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but immediately withdraw you work if it is accepted elsewhere.
Submissions must be previously unpublished, original works.
We will do our best to respond to each submission within 90 days. If 90 days has passed, please send us an inquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try our best to respond much sooner.
Short Fiction: Send one story up to 7000 words.
Flash Fiction: Send one story up to 1000 words.
Creative Non-Fiction: Send one personal essay or memoir up to 5000 words.
Plays: Send one one-act play up to 20 pages.
Poetry: Send 3-5 poems. If spoken word, send 1-3 recordings.
Art & Music: We are open to all mediums and genres. For art work, submissions must be adaptable to accommodate the space, so send us your work in a minimum of 300 ppi.
While we won't know exactly what we like until we see it, we do like honest, accessible work. Things that are overly abstract or don't make readers feel something don't do it for us. We want you to make us laugh and/or cry. We want you to challenge us as readers. We want your work to pass the Bechdel Test. We will not tell you which writers we worship, though we will tell you we don't worship Raymond Carver, Ernest Hemingway, or John Updike.
Rights revert to the author upon publication. While we cannot pay contributors at this time, we hope this changes in the future.
