womanwritingAnyone who has ever cracked open one of the “major” lit mags knows that women are by far the under-represented sex. If you want the exact numbers, refer to VIDA’s Count. They have charts!

Even with publications like Poetry striving for a fair mix, it can be hard to find markets if you’re female and writing today. What a shame!

Thank God for the rise in “women-centric” journals. While not a comprehensive resource, I have attempted to compile a list of such pubs below:

All Things Girl
damselfly press
Kalyani Magazine
Lavender Review*
Literary Mama*
Minvera Rising
Persimmon Tree*
PMS poemmemiorstory
ROAR Magazine
Seeding the Snow*
So to Speak Journal
The Mom Egg
VoiceCatcher Journal*
Voices Project
When Women Waken
WomenArts Quarterly Journal

*denotes magazines narrowed further by ethnicity, age, etc.

If your publication has been left off OR you know of a journal that should have been included, please add via the comments section. Feedback is…great, terrific, awesome!
