Welcome and thank you for submitting to bluestockings! We are a Providence, RI-based feminist multimedia publication. We write about issues from a gender-aware perspective and an anti-oppression framework.

Please only submit to us if your work offers a critical feminist/anti-oppression analysis or lens.

We hope that bluestockings provides a platform for engaging work created within diverse communities that relate to issues of gender and sexuality.
  • We accept work from every genre and medium, and highly encourage work from people of color with intersectional identities. We welcome work from first-time contributors, who can expect a hands-on editing process from our team. Explore and engage with the content on our site before submitting.
  • We do not accept pieces that perpetuate racism, colonialism, ableism, transmisogyny, and so on. Please be sure that your submissions have an intersectional framework, that does not exclude people with marginalized identities, before submitting.
  • Our accepted pieces tend to be less than 4 pages long. If your work is longer than that, consider submitting and abbreviated version for publication.
  • Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, as long as you immediately notify us if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
  • Unfortunately, we are not currently able to compensate our writers.
  • We are interested in original, unpublished pieces.
  • We accept creative nonfiction, personal & cultural essays, fiction, and visual/multimedia art. 
  • Please allow two weeks for a response. If you don't hear back within 4 weeks, feel free to contact us at bluestockingsmagazine@gmail.com.
We look forward to reviewing your work!
