So to Speak Nonfiction Reading Period Extended!

So to Speak: a feminist journal of language and art, has extended its nonfiction reading period to Tuesday, March 31.

We have a wide view of feminism and are particularly interested in expanding our variety of submissions. We’d like to see pieces that embrace or deeply consider unusual perspectives on common feminist topics (the intersection of gender, socio-economic status, immigration status, race, sexuality, motherhood, sisterhood, ), or uncommon ones (religion and feminism,  religious beliefs and reproductive freedom, biblical femininity, or anything else that you’ve noticed!). Essentially, we are looking to give voice to stories pertaining to women which would otherwise go unheard.

We consider a wide range of literary forms, including:

-personal essays: lyric or narrative

-experimental essays


-character sketches/profiles, including well-developed interviews

-flash/micro nonfiction

Please submit for free online at: Multiple and simultaneous submissions accepted. 4,000 word limit. Chosen essays will be published in our Fall 2015 print issue.
