HerStory is a literary journal devoted to women. The journal is seeking written and visual works that challenge, intrigue and enlighten our community. HerStory welcomes a variety of perspectives: both women and men are encouraged to submit their work, as long as the work gives women a voice. Accepted submissions include: poetry, prose, short stories, essays, reviews, interviews, visual art, photography, monologues and 10-minute plays.
All literary pieces must be sent in Microsoft Word. You may submit up to five titles (each having an 8” x 11” page maximum of 5 single-spaced or 10 double-spaced pages). Artwork should be submitted as prints or slides. Photos should be submitted as 4 x 7 or larger prints (all photos will appear inside the journal in black and white).With all submissions, include name, pen name if applicable, telephone number and e-mail address. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if notification is given and includes both the name of the publisher and publication. Previously published works will not be considered.
