Hysterical 27

About

Hysterical is a dudeless literary utopia where we highlight and champion the voices of writers who are women, femmes, and non-binary people. People in the back, in the margins, people who have to fight to get a word in edgewise, people who create whole worlds just to amuse themselves. We want to reclaim our voices. We want to celebrate people writing against prevailing patriarchal expectations, and against the expectations society places upon them as non-men. We want to offer a magazine and a community that says “look at these badasses” because recognition is still minimal. VIDA’s 2016 count showed that only 48% of surveyed publications reach gender parity and we want to do our part to change that. We want to widen what is celebrated in literary circles and society as a whole.

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. Just remember…

  • 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.
