Deadline July 1 | Call for Submissions for the Wisdom Issue: Underwired (women | homorarium: $100 per essay)

Post date: Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Deadline: 1 July 2012


Knowing everything/not knowing anything, the search/journey to figure it out, learning to let go, learning from the beautiful women who have gone before us.


Underwired publishes personal essays (800-1200 words) every month and is always looking for new contributors. Essays should somehow relate to the chosen theme for the month and be on topics of interest to women. Underwired buys one-time rights, and payment is $100 (Please note that payment, along with a copy of published piece, is sent when checks are processed. This could take between 30-60 days. Please do not email within this time frame as we can not respond to all email inquiries due to the volume that we receive). All essays are considered on spec. Please be familiar with personal essay style of writing. Underwired does not accept submissions for fiction or poetry at this time. Have fun!

Essays should be sent as an attachment as well as copied within the body of the email. Please include the month/theme that you are submitting for in the subject line. Essays will not be returned unless you include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Please include a brief bio with your submission. Essays that do not include a bio will not be considered! Deadlines are the 1st of the month for placement in the following month. Please see examples in bold at the top of this page. Underwired can not be held liable for the loss or damage of any work submitted for consideration. We reserve the right to edit for clarity and/or space. Please note: Due to the volume that we receive, we can not offer feedback. We have to consider many factors when selections are made, and a decline is not always reflective of a writer's style.
