WAQ provides readers with contemporary examples of the work of women creators, and therefore, seeks submissions by women only. We do not wish to publish work that exclusively addresses the experience or concept of womanhood. Furthermore, it is not necessary for the subject matter of work submitted to pertain to womanhood at all. The best way to find out what we do like is to pick up a copy of WAQ here: www.vivacepress.com/waq.

Please read the genre-specific guidelines listed below before submitting.


Thanks,
