Feral Feminisms publishes full-length academic essays (about 5000 – 7000 words), shorter creative pieces or cultural commentaries (about 500 – 2500 words), poetry, photo-essays, short films, visual and sound art, or a combination of these. We welcome submissions from students, artists, activists, and established academics. We especially encourage graduate students to submit.

Submissions are subject to a two-tiered process. Guest Editors review all submissions and select for peer review those submissions that best fit the aims and scope of the issue. Subsequently, pieces under consideration are subject to double-anonymous peer review, are reviewed by peer reviewers, and receive collegial feedback on their work.


Each issue of Feral Feminisms builds around a particular thematic curated by the guest editors and therefore only accepts submissions relevant to the current call for papers. When submitting, please include the following:

>We only accept submissions in electronic formats: Written submissions should be in Microsoft Word. Image submissions should be in jpeg, with a maximum file size of 1 MB. Film submissions should be uploaded to Vimeo with a link to the film provided in the submission email. If you are interested in submitting a film or multimedia piece, please contact the Managing Editor(s) [feralfeminisms[at]gmail[dot]com]. All art and non-text based submissions should be accompanied by a paragraph length artist statement that outlines the goals of the work and how it engages with the CFP.

>Email submissions to the current Guest Editor(s) (contact emails as per the current CFP) and to the Managing Editor(s) of Feral Feminisms [feralfeminisms[at]gmail[dot]com].

>A separate document with the contributor’s name and email, affiliated school (if applicable), a 100-word abstract, and a 60-word biography.

>We do not use endnotes. All references should be embedded in the text (Author Year, Page) and accompanied by a “Works Cited” page, following the Chicago citation format.

>For written submissions: 1 inch (2.54 cm) margins. Times New Roman 12pt. Double spaced. Include page number in header. Bold headings.

>Chicago citation format.

>The author(s) should ensure that their name does not appear in the manuscript or creative work, or in the text in a way that will compromise the anonymity of the peer review process. Citations to an author(s)’ own works should be made in a way that does not compromise anonymity.

>Previously published articles will not be considered without the permission of the editors. Do not simultaneously offer your article to another publication. The author(s) always retains copyright of their work. The author(s) may republish provided they request permission from the managing editors and they agree to acknowledge that it appeared in Feral Feminisms.


We are also, on an ongoing basis, seeking proposals for guest editing future special issues, on any topic of relevance to Feral Feminisms, broadly understood. Interested guest editors should submit a proposal of 500 words outlining the proposed theme and vision for the special issue, a title, and the issue’s relevance to the Aims & Scope of the journal, as well as a 2 page curriculum vitae. Please see our Get Involved page for more details.
