We’re going for the Gurlesque. Think blood and sequins, grotesque glamour, brutal honesty with flair and edge. Don’t be afraid to be dark and velvety. Grimm’s fairy tales with a feminist edge. Please read our aesthetic page and the pieces featured in The Plot.
We’re especially interested in the marginalized voices, so women, POC, LGBTQ, and everyone in-between/unlabeled, please send your work! Everyone has an equal shot.
1-3 poems, flash fiction, or lyric essay (up to 3,000 words). Please query for any other type of writing.
Send a cover letter & submission as DOC attachment to VillainessPress@gmail.com.
