Call for Submissions - In Her Place: Stories about Women Who Get Around

Post date: 21 May 2011
Deadline: 31 July 2011

In what ways does being female affect one’s sense of place, placement, and/or (dis)location?

We are seeking submissions of prose writing by women, and strongly encourage you to submit your work for consideration. We are looking for fiction and nonfiction stories that wrestle explicitly or implicitly with the question posed above. A selection of submitted stories will be published in a web anthology called In Her Place: Stories about Women Who Get Around in the fall of 2011. A publisher is also being sought for a print version.

We prefer submissions to be 3000 words or less, but will consider longer pieces of exceptional quality. We will not accept submissions of poetry. A cover letter is not necessary.

Please send your submissions to submissions@inherplace.org in the following manner:

Subject: Title, name of author, word count

Body: Title again, short bio, and the entire story pasted into the email.

Submission deadline is July 31, 2011. Attachments will not be opened. We will consider previously published work if the rights have been returned to you but please make note of where and when it was originally published.

We are Marci Daniels, and Jessica Erica Hahn, both writers based in San Francisco and graduate students in the San Francisco State University’s Creative Writing MFA program.
