Welcome topics include, but are certainly not limited to: social issues, politics, basic human rights, the fight for equality, mental health, relationships, abuse, major life changes, etc. However, work that condones violence, racism, or prejudice against any people, or group of people will not be tolerated and any submission that disregards this request will be deleted immediately with no response. 

Since this journal is for womxn and non-binary folx, CIS men are unable to submit unless there is a specific call put out by the editor-in-chief. These emails will also be deleted with no response.​

Please note: Although most journals may publish your work as is, I am an editor, too. This means I will make suggestions to your work as I see fit. This is to further educate those willing to sharpen their skills and to help them develop a well-rounded comprehension of Modern Japanese short forms.

#FemkuMag requires first rights, meaning we want to be the first venue to present the poems to the public. However, rights are restored with the author upon release of publication.
