So to Speak Short Fiction Contest

The editors of So to Speak write:

So to Speak, a feminist literary journal, announces its Fall 2010 Short Fiction Contest, judged by Maud Casey.

We are interested in provocative, engaging stories that push the boundaries of what a reader imagines when she or he hears the word "feminism." We like stories that make us think about gender and gender roles. We like stories that we haven't read before. We do publish both male and female writers.

We believe that feminist writing can be funny or whimsical. We believe that you may have written a story that could be called feminist and not even have known it. To get an idea of the kind of fiction we love, please check out our featured story online at
Featured stories are first printed in the journal.

The winner of the fiction contest is awarded $500, 2 copies of the magazine, and publication in the journal. Stories should not exceed 5,000 words. The postmark deadline is March 15, 2009.

Our reading period for poetry and nonfiction is also open for general submissions, and we look forward to reading your work. The same postmark deadline applies, March 15, 2009. As there is no poetry or nonfiction contest this semester, no reading fee applies to those genres.

Mail entries to:
