Submit . . . to Us!

Dear Women Writers,

Thank you so much for venturing to our blogsite, and for showing interest in sharing your words with the WWS community. 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


  • Pieces should be nonfiction between 500-2000 words
  • Email the piece as an attached .doc or .docx
  • Include a short cover letter in the document that states how you heard of Women Who Submit, your genre, and where you reside
  • Send to and be sure to write the submission category in the topic line. e.g.: “Claps and Cheers”
