Call for Writers: Women in the Workplace Anthology;

Please note this is a working title – not the final.

We are currently seeking submissions for an upcoming anthology focused on women in the workplace. We are interested in essays, stories, and personal accounts that explore the experiences of women in various work environments, from corporate offices to small businesses to freelance careers.

We welcome submissions from women of all backgrounds, with a particular focus on stories that center the experiences of women from marginalized communities, including women of color, LGBTQIA+ women, and women with disabilities.

In addition to written submissions, we are also seeking high-quality images and photographs to accompany the selected pieces. Images should depict women in various work environments, showcasing their diverse experiences and perspectives. Images are not required for submission.

Submission Guidelines:

Written pieces should be no longer than 2,000 words.

Images should be high-resolution and in JPEG or PNG format. Images must be owned by person submitting for inclusion in the anthology with permission for use.

All writing and image submissions should be previously unpublished.

Please include a brief bio and contact information (phone number and e-mail) with your submission.

Submissions should be sent to with the subject line “Women in the Workplace\Anthology Submission.”

Deadline for submissions is May 22nd, 2023 by 11:57p EST.

Selected writers and artists will be notified by July 30th, 2023. We will provide full credit to all contributors in the final publication. We anticipate a Spring/Summer 2024 publication date.
