Submission Guidelines

Feminist writers welcomed! Submit your best work for publishing consideration.

We publish feminist fiction and select non-fiction. We are thrilled that you are considering partnering with us! Bravebird Publishing is not a vanity press. Authors are never charged a fee in exchange for publication. Our authors receive the services detailed on our Author Services page and more at no cost to them.

While we do support every writer in their pursuit of success, not every project is a good fit for us. If you’d like us to consider publishing your work you should know that we look at the story as well as the writer behind it. Read on for more details.


We are currently looking for thought provoking fantasy/adventure novels with a strong tie to womanist (feminist) thinking. Don't be afraid to step out of the box!

Writer should have:

  • Fresh voice.
  • Willingness to participate in marketing.
  • Strong writing skills.
  • Established platform.

Writing should have:

  • Message that will resonate with today’s feminists.
  • Fresh perspective on an issue that has been overlooked.
  • Series potential.
