Writer’s Guidelines

Submit an article, poem or interview, to Black Feminist Collective, where submissions are always open and no experience in writing is required! If you don’t hear back from us at all, assume that your submission wasn’t selected.

After you hear from our editorial team, they will work with you on your article if any necessary edits to your submission(s) are needed. After any and all necessary edits are made, your edited submission(s) will be sent back to you to approve it for publishing. Black Feminist Collective publishes new work every Saturday.
