Lucy Writers is a website devoted to showcasing the work of women and non-binary writers and creatives. We aim to challenge and change the culture around online journalism and writing. We want to provide a safe, inclusive and inspiring space for our writers and artists. We believe that, irrespective of where you are in your career, all writers should have a place to explore and develop their creative voice. We want to be that place, room and home for your words.
Whether you’re an established, out-of-practice or new-to-the-writing-desk writer, we want to hear from you! It’s our writers and creatives who are going to help shape and strengthen our platform; it’s our invaluable and talented contributors who are going to create a more diverse, openminded and openhearted space.
Lucy Writers recognises that all women and non-binary individuals still need a ‘room’ of their ‘own’, as Virginia Woolf wrote in her renowned essay. We, in collaboration with Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge, would like this room to be open to all; we want it to be a space that celebrates the thoughts, voices and experiences of women and non-binary people the world over.
If you have an idea that you want to share, please get in touch. We accept submissions on a regular basis and also run several guest editorials throughout the year. Our current mini-series, Our Body’s Bodies, features creatives whose work, ideas and personal experiences explore embodiment, bodily agency, the liberties imposed on, taken with, or found in our bodies. Beginning from a position of multiplicity and intersectionality, our contributors explore their body’s bodies and the languages – visual, linguistic, aural, performance-based and otherwise – that have enabled them to express and reclaim different forms of (dis)embodiment in the last two years.
