PDXX Collective: Read and Submit!


There’s a new website for women writers. The PDXX Collective is a daily dosage of literary feminism, exploring how publishing more women writers can provide more social equality between the genders. Fuck yeah!

Mary Breaden began this online writers’ collective with the goal of making a weekly smashup of women writers. Over the next three months, the PDXX writers will be conducting interviews with women writers, publishers, and business owners they admire, including Chloe CaldwellLidia Yuknavitch, Chandler O’Leary of Anagram Press, Krista Lyons of Seal Press, and more. As aspiring writers themselves, they feel it’s important to connect with other women in publishing. Preach.

If you are a woman writer with a killer beat or story to tell and are interested in contributing, submit your stuff. They publish literary fiction and nonfiction, as well as responses to particular current events, and interviews.

And another thing! PDXX has done a mitzvah by putting together a list of upcoming literary and e-journal deadlines. Get up on it!

Thank you, PDXX Collective.
