We want to share the stories you’ve been told not to tell.
We publish poetry, non-fiction, and hybrid work by people who identify as or alongside female/trans/non-binary, and who write about existing in a world that tells you your stories are not worthy of art. We believe that your stories are worthy, and we believe in the importance of telling them.
We don’t like the word confessional. But we do want to tell you all our secrets. Like how we’re such witchy moon-lovers that we decided to offer up our weekly featured piece according to the phase of the moon. After we’ve lined them up with the week’s moon on our home page, we tuck our accepted pieces away into The Almanac, a collection of the work we’ve accepted that season. There your words can live happily until the end of the internets. You don’t have to get witchy for us to swoon over your work and want to publish it. But we do hope you’ll consider howling at the full moon with us sometime soon.
