ENOUGH is a Rumpus series devoted to creating a dedicated space for work by women, trans, and nonbinary people who engage with rape culture, sexual assault, and domestic violence. We will open a reading period for new submissions from January 1 through January 31. We know a holiday season is coming up for many, and that this time of year can be especially difficult. We invite you to share your voice with us. Submissions will be received through Submittable. (Please note: the category will appear on Submittable, with complete guidelines, on January 1, 2022.)
We consider personal essays, critical essays, poetry, comics, and hybrid work. We are especially interested in work that considers who has been taught to speak up and who has been taught to be silent, who has access to healthcare and to therapy, and how these inequalities make vulnerable populations even more vulnerable. While we support the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, ENOUGH is its own series and we ask that you avoid using these hashtags in your titles and essays unless you are writing a piece that centers around or investigates the campaigns themselves. Prose should be between 1000–3500 words. You may submit three poems or five pages of poetry in one submission. We can only consider work that has not been previously published (this includes personal blogs and social media). All work should have a title.
Please email [email protected] with questions or concerns.
