Call for Submissions: Women’s Travel Stories for “My Wandering Uterus”, Due July 1, 2017 - (Expired)

Calls for Submissions For Writers

This submission call is now closed. You can find calls that are still accepting contributions at Calls for Submissions.



Don’t let the title of this anthology fool you. It’s open to all women, with or without uteruses, to be edited by “all-purpose writer” K.A. Laity. Essays should be previously unpublished, 3,000 to 8,000 words, and turned in by July 1. Here’s the call:

We seek essays, stories and poetry about your experiences of being a woman on the road — the joys, the perils, the lessons, the changes. Whether a spiritual pilgrimage or a forced evacuation, in pursuit of opportunity or escape from your past, travel broadens. What have you learned?

We would like to see a diverse treasure trove of entries from women across the globe from every walk of life and as many different experiences as possible. If you no longer have a uterus or were born without one, never fear: all women are welcome. …
We will ask for world-wide print & ebook rights for a year and pay at minimum $10 via Paypal plus give you a copy of the book. We hope to do some fundraising to make the payments more generous but that will be determined as we go along. …

If you need a little background on the concept of the ‘wandering uterus’ as a diagnosis to control women, please read this wonderful piece.
