Lit Mag Spotlight: Literary Journals By And For Women Writers

literary magazines for womenIn honor of International Women’s Day, we wanted to feature some of the fantastic literary journals that support (and publish) women’s writing. Although a recent report shows that some literary journals favor men over women when it comes to published work, the literary journals below continue to encourage submissions from women writers and readers.

This list of women-centric literary journals has been developed from our extensive database of markets for creative writers. We at Writer’s Relief maintain a (constantly updated) database to identify the publications that are best-suited to our clients’ particular style and content. This is just a small selection of journals that are especially encouraging to women writers; the list is not complete.

List of Literary Journals And Magazines That Are By And For Women Writers

We applaud these fantastic journals and encourage writers to subscribe to, support, read, and submit to them!

Please Like, Tweet, and Share with the (women) writers you know!

Twitter Tip: Use hashtag #SupportLitMags.

Happy reading!

  1. This is a wonderful list of literary reviews that support women and women’s writing. In a male dominated publishing world that often does it’s collective best to silence women writers, its nice to know that there are people who appreciate the writing of women, which will always be different from that of men and in many ways, superior to the writing of men.

  2. Thanks for the list, WR! Inspired by today’s “holiday,” I’m going to submit to these journals :)
