We’re women-focused (hence the name), but we really just want to feature writing that treats women well as characters. We’re open to submissions from anyone, no matter what gender you identify as.

  • Our first submission window is open from April 1st – April 30th, and the (suggested) theme is The Body.
  • Short fiction should be no more than 1000 words (if you have something a bit over, please contact us) and flash fiction (less than 500) is preferred.

At the moment we are unable to…

Workshop :: Full Steam Ahead!

Sorry for the short notice, but we have another exciting workshop happening tomorrow.

Sarah Grace and Rebecca Audra are running a workshop responding to the installation by Joanna Vasconcelos at Manchester Art Gallery. 

The workshop runs from 12-2pm, and we’ll be meeting in the main entrance of the gallery at 11:50 to start prompt from 12. 

Britannia hanging in the atrium.

Britannia hanging in the atrium.

You can find the event on facebook here.

Through the use of traditional Portuguese techniques and materials – crochet, lace, ceramics – she seeks to debunk the rigid pomposity of fine art, creating informal public art spaces.

The workshop is free, but we welcome donations for the workshop facilitators.

We hope to see some of you there!
