Call for mss. Women’s Voices, Women’s Stories.

For September 2022, WordCity Literary Journal is seeking works on women’s issues and stories, including but not limited to reproductive and other rights related to the experience of being women and girls. WCLJ is inclusive, and we welcome writing and art from trans-women for this issue (because trans-women are women).

On the subject of reproductive rights, freedom and justice, we also welcome other people who can, have or could have become pregnant, including trans-men and people who identify as non-binary. Men’s voices are welcome as allies.

At WCLJ, we consider this one of our most important calls for mss yet. With the dismantling of reproductive rights and reproductive justice in the United States in June, our editorial board stands with women, trans-men and non-binary people and our allies, not only in the U.S., but around there world, wherever these rights are denied or imperiled.

Please visit our Submission Guidelines, and please consider sending us your work on Reproductive Rights (inclusive of trans-men and non-binary people) and Women’s Experiences.

Thank you to each and every one who reads and contributes to this journal.

The Editorial Team at WCLJ
