call for submissions – SHE: Seen. Heard. Engaged.

open for submissions

announcing the call for submissions for the upcoming anthology SHE: Seen. Heard. Engaged. Female and female-identifying youth ages 8-18 are encouraged to submit to this important anthology. we are looking for poetry, flash fiction, creative non-fiction, short essays, and artwork describing the experience of being a girl in America at this time in history.

a lot is happening at this time in history. the feelings and attitudes of youth are often not considered. but young women have strong opinions about their future, their values, and the causes they take up and fight. there are no judgments here, no parents or teachers and classmates telling you what to say, feel, believe. put it all on the page.

submissions are being accepted through January 31, 2021. you will be notified by February 28, 2021, if your piece is selected for inclusion in the anthology. view the complete call for submissions here.

we are committed to including underrepresented voices. we encourage all female and female-identifying youth aged 8-18 to submit regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, citizenship status, ability, or national origin.
