Zine Submissions: The Nuances of New Age Feminism

Temp Closed

Please make sure to read through the submission guidelines on our website before submitting.

The theme of our first zine is The Nuances of New-Age Feminism.. With modern day feminism being so multi-faceted, we've seen many new waves of feminism taking off in corners of the internet. From dissociative feminism to girl-boss feminism, new subsets of the movement have been rising rapidly on social media. It's left many of us wondering, where does the feminist movement go from here? Is one form of feminism supposed to bring us more liberation than another? Musing Publications wants to hear how you're dissecting your own place in the movement in the age of social media.

We want your poetry, short stories, visual art, photography, essays - any medium you choose to express yourself in is welcome! For poetry submissions, please submit up to three poems. For art or photography, please submit up to 5 pieces. Short stories should be 2000 words or less and essays should be 1000 words or less. Fees for all submissions to the magazine are $3.
