Word Count: 750-1,000 words

Payment: $25 for stories selected to be included in “Publish Her Anthology: Dear Body.”

Rights: Publish Her requests first serial rights on the stories published in this anthology, meaning the story should not have appeared anywhere else, either in print or online. (This includes publication on an author’s own website.) If your story is published in the anthology, we request a period of exclusivity (one year) and the right to keep the story in print as part of the anthology. Publish Her does not request more rights than needed to produce this anthology or place any limits on what the author can do with the story after the exclusivity period. Copyright always remains with the author.

Editor’s Note: If you would like your story to appear anonymously in the book, please note it as your preference on your submission.
