Bluestockings Magazine is seeking submissions for the blog!
We have been in the process of building an engaging, diverse, inclusive and community-driven group of writers, artists and thinkers interested in feminism, gender, sexuality, race, class, and issues of identity and disparity more broadly. Our blog and print platforms feature all sorts of content: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, visual art, comedy, interviews, hard-hitting journalism, personal memoirs and testimonies, and academic writing focusing on culture, politics, sex, health, and anything else related to women’s or minority’s rights and/or issues.
We have an array of positions for fixed writers to encourage regular contributions. Contributing writers and reporters are responsible for at least two pieces of content per month. After a six month trial period, we offer two positions: staff writers are responsible for at least two articles per month, while senior contributing writers are only required to submit once per month. For those interested, we also offer blog editor positions, which give our writers the opportunity to critique and engage with the material that is published on our blog.
Writers should have blogging and social media experience, though we are open to submissions from everyone – regardless of their background. We do not stipulate what the nature of the content should be, though are willing to provide ideas for articles and workshop individual ideas and pieces.
Regardless of your ability to commit as a contributor, we encourage everyone to consider submitting any piece that they believe is pertinent to our project as a publication.
Although all positions are unfortunately unpaid, writing for Bluestockings is an excellent opportunity to publish your work, have it read, gain online exposure, raise awareness about marginalized struggles, and expand your writing portfolio.
If you are interested in learning more or have any questions, please email email@example.com.
For those interested in regularly contributing, please indicate your preferred level of commitment and submit an article, two to three pitches for other articles, a writing sample (if available) and anything else you find appropriate to your application.
To submit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and cc email@example.com for written submissions or firstname.lastname@example.org for visual submissions with the subject, SUBMISSION.
We look forward to working with you!
Yours, the Bluestockings Blog Editorial Board
