Write for us

The Lucy Writers’ Platform 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’re at 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 kind of writer, we want to hear from you! Our current theme is titled Night / Shift, and posits night as a feminine and feminist zone which subverts the codes and practices of day (see here for more details). But we also encourage writers to pitch ideas and submit work that lie outside of this theme.

We’re keen to hear your pitches, submissions or ideas for reviews. See our Submissions, Special Editions and Contact pages for more information about our current theme or write to us on lucywritersplatformlcc@gmail.com

Acceptance of submissions is at the discretion of the editors. We adhere to the following editorial principles when considering features, opinion pieces and investigative reports: accuracy, fairness, balance, a full attribution to sources and a clear separation of reports from analysis and opinion.
