Submissions are currently OPEN!
[inherspacejournal] welcomes underrepresented and well-seasoned women artists.
We strongly believe that you are the owner of your own work and have the right to publish your work in other areas. For this reason, simultaneous submissions are allowed but we ask that you inform us if your work has been accepted for submission to other publications (in the event that we have the privilege of documenting your work first). On condition that this occurs, we request that you recognize that [inherspacejournal] was the first journal to host your work.
When your work becomes available, we will promote it on our social media accounts and promote you as an author. You will always receive credit for your own original work! If you would not like to participate in media promotion, please let us know.
During our reading period, we accept up to five pieces of work. If you would like to submit a chapbook, we request that it is no more than 20 pages (not including the title page, table of contents, or acknowledgments) with one poem per respective page numbered accordingly.
If your work discusses subject matter that may be harmful to other individuals, (such as sexual assault, self-harm, suicide, depression, eating disorders, or death,) please include a *content warning* on your piece. We want this space to feel as safe and comfortable as possible, and want to protect both our authors and readers.
Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and attach your desired piece (pdf or docx accepted) of poetry, art, creative nonfiction, fiction, or short story with the subject line:

If you would like feedback before submitting your work, please do not hesitate to ask. This is an open journal, and we want to see you succeed!
We reserve the right to reject work we feel is unfit for [inherspacejournal].
