Welcome and thank you for submitting to bluestockings! We are a Providence, RI-based publication, committed to centering voices of people from marginalized and historically resilient communities.

Before submitting, please take a moment to read our submission guidelines:
  1. We accept work from every genre and medium, and highly encourage work from people of color with intersectional identities. Explore and engage with the content on our site before submitting.
  2. We do not accept pieces that perpetuate racism, colonialism, ableism, transmisogyny, and so on. Be sure that your submissions have an intersectional framework, that do not exclude people with marginalized identities.
  3. Our accepted pieces tend to be between 1-3 pages long. If your work is longer than three pages, please send an abbreviated version for publication.
  4. We are interested in original, unpublished pieces. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, as long as you immediately notify us if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
