Issue 1 of Feminine Inquiry has been out for some time now and we’ve all been thinking towards the future. We had a blast producing Issue 1, and even more fun hosting our launch party and listening to our fabulous contributors read their pieces, but the most fun part of any literary journal is, of course, getting submissions. There’s something thrilling about culling through a pile of phenomenal writers, oohing and awing over their masterful words, salivating over their sentences (okay not everyone does this), and clapping for joy when we find something we really like.
With that in mind, we’re pleased to announce that we’re about to open submissions again for Feminine Inquiry‘s Second Issue! But wait, there’s more! While we’re still going to be accepting any works of prose, poetry, and art by anyone, anywhere, we’re mixing things up a bit this issue as well. First and foremost, the details: submissions will open up on June 24th and run till August 31st. We intend on publishing Issue 2 in mid October, so we need ample time to plan and prep. As I mentioned above, we accept all works of prose, poetry, and art, by anyone, anywhere, regardless of how they personally identify. For more information on what we’re looking for, hop over to our submission page.
Now for the new and exciting information:
We’re pleased to announce that Issue 2 will include Feminine Inquiry’s first ever Fiction Contest! We’re looking for Short stories and works of fiction that are exciting, refreshing, well thought out, and just overall great reads. The winner of our 2015 Fall Prize for Fiction will receive a check for $100, publication in Issue 2, a free digital copy of the journal, as well as copious amounts of praise by our fans, followers, and staff members! The contest will also include two runner-ups, who will each receive publication in the journal and a free digital copy of the journal. The contest is free and open to the public, for more rules and judging guidelines, please read below and check out our contest page.
So with all that said, fire up your computers, dust off your short stories, and send us the best you got! We’ll be waiting for it!
