An Important Announcement
We are excited to announce the introduction of an entirely new category: Visual Art!
All Visual Art features will be in BETA testing phase for the next few months.


Do not submit here! This project is on hiatus.


Broad! is a online literary semiannual that publishes exclusively women writers and artists. (“Women” meaning female-bodied or female-identified individuals, by the way.) Women writers are severely underrepresented in literary publications today, and we hope to help change that. We accept poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction (particularly personal essays and nonfictional narrative), photography, and visual art. We’re especially interested in work that crosses or plays with genre. The writing, photography and art included within Broad!‘s pages are not required to be about women or be “women’s stories” (whatever that means); your submission may concern itself with whatever you wish, as long as you are female-bodied or -identified and produced it yourself. Send us your stories about roadtripping, tree-creatures, terrorism, World War II or a person with angel wings growing out of hir back. Send us your thoughts, beliefs and emotions on the page.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
