Essay submissions

Mythos is looking for long-form essays about what womanhood looks like in your life. This is not a strict guideline for topics, which can be as broad and creative as you like, but we ask that they engage in some capacity with womanhood as a theme. Essays can be written as personal narrative or creative nonfiction. Whether you're speaking from your own experience or about the experiences of women you know, we are looking for your authentic voices and stories. Please share with interested friends!

Ideally, essays will be 1,000 to 3,000 words in length, but we will consider anything you send along. You may submit for consideration completed pieces, or brief proposals (200 words max) for potential essays, which our editors will pursue with you if interested. 

Please include a short biographical statement with your essays and proposals, which should be emailed to Note that we accept simultaneous submissions, but you must notify us if your work is picked up elsewhere. 

Thank you for your generosity in submitting to Mythos. We can't wait to read you.
