Arts & Culture

The Feminist Wire is proud to publish outstanding works by established and emerging artists in our Arts & Culture section. We feature poetry, fiction, memoir, and drama, as well as visual art, film, design, and works that cross generic boundaries. Our Arts & Culture section showcases the works of artists at all stages in their artistic lives. Our “Spotlight” series features innovative work by celebrated writers, poets, and artists; our “Suites” series collects the works of several emerging artists thinking through similar themes. We also publish in several other formats, including genre-bending forms like the lyric essay, and short poems or flash fiction pieces on compelling feminist themes. We invite you to take a look, and submit your work!
