viscera: Seeking Creative Writing/Poetry Submissions for 2nd Biannual Chapbook

full name / name of organization: 
The California Journal of Women Writers

The California Journal of Women Writers is a new online journal featuring original reviews and criticism of women's literature from across North America, as well as interviews with authors and commentary on critiques published elsewhere. We do not focus on any one type of literature, as long as the text is written by a female author and is of interest to TCJWW editors.

Our intent is to provide a space for enthusiastic dialogue supporting a wide variety of women writers. We invite our readers to unite, discuss, and join our conversation with insightful comments. This is a space devoted to fostering and enhancing the visibility of North American female authors.

The California Journal of Women Writers seeks submissions from female writers/poets/students for its second biannual chapbook of short fiction and poetry, viscera. The theme of our second publication is centered around the words, ideas, and images evoked when thinking about "home". This theme is meant to create a diverse community and union between us as we reflect on the various homes we have all come from and the homes which we are currently creating for ourselves.

The deadline to send in your submissions is Friday, March 29th, 2013.

Submission Guidelines:

  • You must be a North American female writer submitting your own, unpublished creative short fiction and/or poetry.
  • Each submission must be no longer than 2,000 words.
  • All submissions must be sent to in the BODY of the email – NO ATTACHMENTS WILL BE OPENED. If selected, we will request you send us a document with your piece. Please title your email "Chapbook Submission."
  • Include a short CV and bio along with your submission.
  • You may submit as many pieces of work for consideration as you'd like.
