Coffee Grinder logo with caption: The Grinder, brewing your submissions into something useful

With the R v W leak, and increasingly invasive restrictions on the bodily autonomy of people with uteruses, women, and many gender minorities. People feel betrayed by a system that promised to protect their rights and the people in power who swore they were overreacting.

What does that look like?

How does anger manifest when it’s been bottled up and gaslit for decades?

What kind of power does that anger hold?

Incubate means any number of things. It is how a body can make a fetus into a baby.

But we also can incubate anger, power, ideas, strength.

What do those things look like when they are born into the world?

We don’t want the stories of oppression. We don’t want rape and abuse, at least not on the page. We want the horror that comes when a woman oppressed released all the rage that has incubated within her in a system that dehumanizes her.

We want the manifestations of Lilith, Medusa, Kali, Freya

Goddesses of feminine strength and feminine rage and the chaos they unleash upon the world.

We want blood. We want body horror and monsters and witches and revolution.

We want authentic voices and stories that rip away from the male gaze.
