This Month's Theme:
Here's what we're looking for:
Mental Health & Inspiration
The Mind Section seeks stories that illuminate pathways toward better mental health. Mental health personal essays, features on individuals and organizations involving women of color in the mental health field, mental health perspectives on pop culture and current events as well as tips for inspired living are welcome.
Soul + Spirit
The Spirit Section seeks engaging stories that cover meditation, mindfulness, religion, and spirituality. Personal stories are welcome as well as instructional pieces, listicles, and features.
The Reflections Section seeks personal, transparent essays about identity, life experiences, growth, healing, self-love, reclaiming life, and finding inspiration. Poetry, art pieces and other mediums may also be considered.
The Natural Beauty Section seeks tips and tricks to help women of color enhance their radiance with natural ingredients and non toxic green brands. This section also highlights women of color who are doing innovative things in the healthy beauty world with nourishing, responsibly-made, natural ingredients.
How to Submit
Send pitches or completed pieces to Submissions@Spokenblackgirl.com. We also accept art, illustrations, and photography. Please include the name of the section you wish to contribute to in the email subject.
We believe it is important to pay marginalized writers for their creative work and expressions. A modest rate will be paid for all accepted pieces. As our site grows, we hope to increase our rate and provide more opportunities for women of color to be compensated for their work.
