Editorial Focus: 

We seek book-length manuscripts in poetry, memoir, short fiction and creative nonfiction, written by women, that reflect the highest standards of literary quality. We are open to work that is genre-bending and/or experimental. In 2009 we will not be considering novel manuscripts. We do remain interested in short story collections.

Tips From the Editor: 

Please see our website for genre-specific criteria and guidelines.
