In 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.
