Bimbo Feminist Anthology Purple Ink Press (Gold Star Program) Gold Star

Calling all bimbos, himbos, and thembos for a special multi-genre feminist anthology, we are requesting your most revealing poetry, fiction, nonfiction, hybrid work, and visual art. We love writing that is innovative in form and

progressive in content. Send us art that empowers us and makes us giggle. We have a particular

soft spot for work with a pop culture edge. We encourage queer and BIPOC writers and artists to please submit. We look forward to all the sugar and spice you send our way.

Guidelines:

  • Submissions must be the author’s original work; therefore, translations may not be submitted.
  • Please only submit work with lyrics that are your own. We do not publish work with outside lyrics. Why? Because permissions are needed for each lyric, and this is often very expensive.
  • Poetry submissions may include 3-4 poems per submission. Please submit all your poems in one document.
  • Please title your submission file: Firstname_Lastname_Genre (ex: Jane_Doe_Poetry)
  • Visual artists should include up to 3 pieces per submission in jpeg format, under 7MB. If accepted, we will request a hi-res version.
  • Works of prose may be up to 5,000 words per submission.
  • All work must not have been previously published online or in print to be eligible. This includes being published in blogs or on social media.
  • Simultaneous submissions are welcome. Please notify us if any of your poems are accepted for publication elsewhere.
  • Multiple submissions are accepted to all different genres. For instance, you can submit poetry and art, and fiction.
  • A bio of 80 words or less must be included with your submission.
  • A Word document is the preferred format. PDFs will also be accepted.
  • Thank you for trusting us with your work. We are excited to read it. Like you, we are writers. We will do our best to review submissions within 4-8 weeks, but we might take a bit longer. If you haven’t heard from us in 12 weeks, feel free to drop us a line.
  • This anthology will be published in 2024.
There are no active public submission calls for this project.
