We are looking for previously unpublished first-person POV and narrative pieces written by Black female writers.

Essays can be funny, entertaining, serious or sincere. Content must uplift, inspire and leave readers with something to think about. We want emotion, grit, soul and writing that forges an immediate connection with the reader around your experience.

Submissions cannot include list formats or "5 Ways to..." inspirational instructionals.

  • At this time, we offer $30 for Narrative essays accepted for publication in our literary journal or midnightandindigo.com.
