We are looking for empowering stories with female main characters (written by men or women) that celebrate the Wild Woman archetype: women who are the heroines of their own lives.

Rebellious, subversive, and untamed; maidens, mothers, and crones; Holy women, healers, explorers, artists, and teachers: the Wild Woman takes on many, many forms because every woman is different, and every woman is wild at heart.

We want stories about finding the wild, experiencing the wild, being the wild. 

These can be fiction, nonfiction, or poetry—as usual, if it tells a story, it fits!
