Women Who Submit has had one robust year so far! We’ve been featured in Poets & Writers, Arts Collide and Lunch Ticket, and have been invited panelists/workshop leads at the L.A. Writer’s Conference, UC Irvine’s School of Humanities, About . . . Production’s Post-Salon Series, and at our alma mater Antioch University, LA.
And now, we’re blogging!
We’ll be posting weekly digests of the calls for submissions from our Facebook Page as well as info on our upcoming events, workshops and submission parties, digital press clippings about and by the WWS players, and photo evidence of all the scandalous WWS happenings (and snacks)!
But wait! There’s MORE NEWS: Women Who Submit is getting into the receiving game and we want to hear from YOU! From our Submit . . . to Us! page:
We are looking for nonfiction pieces written by women for women that are instructive, supportive and celebratory, and in the tradition of chisme often shared at our submission parties. Who recently won a major award? What journal has changed its editorial team? How did you get over your anxiety of submitting?
We are looking for advice, reviews, recommendations, interviews, and questions in the following categories:
Submission in Review: reviews and recommendations of literary journals, fellowships, residencies, current open calls, and contests
Closing the Gap: practical submission strategies, holistic exercises, or personal reflections on the battle for self-confidence
Behind the Editor’s Desk: interviews with editors and publishers
Claps and Cheers: celebrating women’s organizations and individual women making strides around the world
Dear Submission Mistress: submission advice based on your submitted questions
It’s exciting times over here at WWS Headquarters. Share the joys of submission with us, yourself, your friends and colleagues et al.!
