The Hitchlit Review Seeks Fiction, Poetry, and Creative Nonfiction on the Theme of Women and Secularism

Deadline: November 17, 2017

The Hitchlit Review is seeking high-quality submissions that explore secularism(s) and feminism(s) for our “Women’s Issue.” Some themes we’d love to see explored:

-Education & Secularism

-Romantic Partnerships & Secularism

-Workplace Secularism

-Domestic Secularism

-Race & Secularism

-Indigenous Feminism & Secularism

-Islamic Feminism & Secularism

-International Secularism

Of course, we don’t always know what we want until we see it, so if your writing approaches feminism and secularism, we’d love to see it. It’s also worth noting, we the editors believe the best submissions explore these issues obliquely, with subtlety, and push beyond easy stereotypes.

We’re looking for short fiction up to 3500 words, flash fiction up to 1000 words, poetry (no poems longer than two pages), and creative nonfiction up to 3500 words. You are welcome to submit in one category for this issue only. We are open to experimental styles as well as writing with more traditional narrative focuses. Above all we want your literary approaches to secularism and feminism. International writers who write in English are welcome—and translations are welcome on a case-by-case basis. Please query us with your translation project.

Submissions can be sent in an attachment (word documents and pdfs only) to hitchlitreview@gmail.com with the subject line “Women’s Issue.”
