Why You Should Submit

Because we at Minerva Rising believe in your wisdom and your creativity.

Because we are committed to the power of women’s voices and we want to make those voices heard.

Because we value your work. We pay writers $50 for fiction or nonfiction prose and $35 for poetry that we select for publication.

Because don’t hide your words under a barrel, that’s why!

Our upcoming themed issues are listed below. The link beside each issue’s Reading Period dates will take you to the Minerva Rising Submittable page. There you can read all sorts of rules and stipulations about reading fees (they’re kind of like crunches and flossing – hate to do ‘em. Gotta do ‘em.), simultaneous submissions (no problem), and where to put your name (not in the body of your work, please ladies).

Ideal submissions encompass the theme of the current issue in all its connotations and interpretations. Send us work that represents the idea of Minerva in a way that moves our soul and challenges our thinking.
