Bimbo Feminist Anthology - Fiction (Go to Poetry)
Purple Ink Press

Note: the closing date is a guess. The publisher says only submissions will close "March 2024."

Calling all bimbos, himbos, and thembos for a special multi-genre feminist anthology, we are requesting your most revealing poetry, fiction, nonfiction, hybrid work, and visual art. We love writing that is innovative in form and progressive in content.

For the Bimbo anthology, we encourage you to interpret and reclaim “bimbo” in whichever way gives you power. We are particularly excited to see work that explores gender, sexuality, interpersonal relationships, fourth-wave feminism, intersectionality, class, self-image/self-love, and ultra-feminization. Think bubble gum, pink, and flip phones. Nostalgia redone with a gloss of equality. We appreciate anti-violence themes, pop culture subjects, and reclamations of derogatory terms. We love icons of the 90s and 2000s, like Anna Nicole Smith, Paris Hilton, and RuPaul. We seek work that celebrates dumb blondes and recognizes that everyone is beautiful and intelligent in their own way, and the best trait one can have is kindness, anyway. If you’ve ever idolized a Playboy centerfold but resented the double-edged sword of the male gaze, this anthology is a home for you. We are resisting stereotypes stylishly!
