The Femellectual is an annual multimedia publication designed and edited by the interns at the Miami University Women*s CenterThe Fem curates testimonies of the human experience, defiance to the status quo, and visions for change from the Miami University community. We accept submissions from people of all genders or people of no gender.

The FEM 2019: DANDELION EDITION is seeking submissions of essays, prose fiction, poetry, and art on the theme of radical growth in hostile conditions.

When you submit work, please include how you would like the piece to be attributed (either anonymously or a name), the genre/medium of the piece, and an artist’s statement for any visual work. As THE FEM stands to amplify narratives of marginalized peoples, feel free to include a sentence about your subjectivity as a creator, or to mention which of your identities inform these pieces.   

As the Dandelion grows in and on rocky, unyielding soil, its roots extend beyond the toxic ground to find the soil that sustains us and helps us to survive.  So do we.
