Feminist Press is Open to Manuscript Submissions (Awards: Book Deal + more) Deadline: January 15, 2023

Feminist Press is calling for manuscript submissions focusing on themes that ignite movements and social transformation.

Feminist Press is a small independent nonprofit publishing company founded in Baltimore, USA, in 1970, with a focus is to publish insurgent and marginalized voices from around the world, with a focus on contemporary and cutting-edge subjects that spark much-needed dialogue and move the feminist conversation forward. They began as a crucial publishing component of second-wave feminism, reprinting feminist classics and presently publishing feminist literature from around the world. Feminist Press submissions are for manuscripts on contemporary feminist issues of equality and gender identity.

Feminist Press seeks political and cultural activist nonfiction that furthers our understanding of intersectional feminism. We gravitate toward voice- and vision-driven stories as well as genre-defying texts. Other topics of interest include feminist dystopia, environmental justice, and immigration stories.

Feminist Press now calls for manuscript submissions directly from writers in two reading periods throughout the year. The first reading period is from November 2, 2022, to January 15, 2023. If you are an eloquent writer, send them your work.
