Lady: Now Seeking Submissions by Female Authors

Written by Ella Peary | October 13, 2016

Lady is an online literary magazine of fiction, young adult fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry written by women. They publish writing by authors of all ages and backgrounds, showcasing the infinite nuances of female experience. At Lady, they hope to give all women the opportunity to share their stories—sad and happy, pretty and ugly, fun, boring, frightening, and all other emotive shades. They seek strong writing, layered with thought and meaning. To get a sense of what they publish, you can read past issues of Lady online.

Poets may submit as many poems as they want, of any length. Fiction and nonfiction writers may submit works of fiction, young adult fiction, or creative nonfiction, up to 5,000 words in length. Fiction writers may also submit works of flash fiction, 1,000 words or fewer.

Lady accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Submitting authors can expect a response within about two weeks. They accept submissions via email, but not online or by post. They do not accept simultaneous submissions, nor do they accept previously published work.
