Call for Submissions 2020


Announcing our first themed issue of the F-Word! For Volume 7, we are accepting submissions about how young women are navigating their lives and the environment around them during COVID-19.


COVID-19 Edition


It is hard not to be inundated with COVID-19. All around us life has changed considerably. The F-Word wants to know what young women under 30 are thinking, saying, feeling and creating during the pandemic for the upcoming edition of the F-Word.

Has COVID-19 affected your studies, employment or housing situation? Has this been a challenging time to be physically away from your friends and the regular hustle and bustle? Has COVID-19 allowed for positive reconnections, healing or needed down-time? Have you had to chance to use this time to create art, or discover something new about yourself? Or maybe you have spent some time thinking through how COVID-19 impacts others? What could the world be doing better? What has inspired you?
