Similarly, Pear Shaped Press publishes essays, short stories, letters, poetry, memoirs, and journals written about women by women. The submission deadline for their newly launched collaborative anthology is February 14th, 2021. Primarily, the two boutique publishers are seeking your essays and letters expressing the specific societal pressures experienced by women and suggesting advice for overcoming such daily challenges.

Their range of suggested topics for “F#!k Low Days!” and Other Sentiments’ (#FLDAOS) include loneliness, body image, self-esteem, motherhood, and marriage. Moreover, the book aims to specifically tackle women’s mental health problems, including discussing how to find power in pain, overcome weakness, and deal with low mood and anxiety. The entries will be published anonymously, with requested contributor acknowledgments to be printed in the back of the book.

Both Pear Shaped Press and Queen Ex Literature are women-owned publishing companies dedicated to putting unique voices into print. Queen Ex Literature specializes in providing e-book services, including development, production, and publishing. Alongside the written submissions, Queen Ex Literature will also be accepting your high-quality mirror selfies in JPEG format.

A spokesperson for the publishers said, “Poetry submissions are welcome, however, we’re mostly looking for essays or letters expressing the expectations put on women to carry the world (and maintain composure) and the advice you’d give another person about how you deal with inevitable low days.”
