So to Speak Journal

So to SpeakFrom the Editor

We are a literary journal that seeks submissions from diverse perspectives and backgrounds that focus on intersectional feminism.We look for work that addresses issues of significance to women and non binary folks’ lives and movements for gender equality and are especially interested in pieces that explore issues of race, class, and sexuality in relation to gender. The journal is committed to representing the work of writers and artists from diverse perspectives and experiences and does not discriminate on the basis of race, class, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, culture of origin, political affiliation, disability, marital or premarital status, Vietnam-era status, or similar characteristics.


We look for poetry, nonfiction, fiction, and visual arts with an intersectional feminist angle.


Currently, our journal’s blog seeks submissions in response to #metoo. We’re accepting poetry, essays, fiction, and visual arts from all narratives and perspectives surrounding the trending hashtag and/or sexual harassment and assault in general. Deadline for this call is November 13th.
We also open for our contest period from December 1st until February 2nd.

One thought on “So to Speak: a feminist journal of language and arts”

  1. A True Tale

    Mother suffered the same pain
    The day she was born
    Felt immense pleasure
    She was unique and sweet
    Full of dramas and dreams
    Played, fought with siblings
    Confident as well intelligent
    Grew up as elegant, polite
    To stand for her ground.

    But became the subject to
    Subjugation by the society
    Men, culture and tradition
    A clown to the various laws
    Even Misunderstood
    Self isolated, Shattered
    Over confident, foolish
    Crone and stupid
    In the eyes of all.

    Equality is not meant For her
    This question should
    Never to be raised
    Must be enduring,
    Sacrificing, quite
    And hardworking.

    Decided to make a move
    Will lead a life for her
    She is loving, supporting
    Caring and family oriented
    But not as weak as you think
    She is a woman
    Really happy to be one.
