Readers Write

A project of Broad!

Do not submit here! This project is believed to be defunct. (June 2014)


At the beginning of each month, we will announce a theme on the blog, and writers will have a few weeks to submit a short piece based on that theme. Readers Write is open to writers of all genders and sex, so that includes our male readers. While it is important to us that Broad! make a space for marginalized writers and artists to be published, we want a readership and conversation that includes a variety of people, because as bell hooks says, Feminism is for Everybody! Just like Broad! is created by women, for everybody. Send us your creative work inspired by this month’s theme.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
