Constance Ann Fitzgerald, Editor/Curator for Ladybox Books

Ladybox Books started as a chapbook box set and is now a small press with an emphasis on the work of badass authors who identify as women. Making zines, books and chapbooks to share unique literary voices.

Tell us your stories, make a few up, just make them count. We’re looking for lean, raw prose that knocks our fucking socks off. If you’re hard to shut up and you identify as (but not limited to) a woman, LGBTQ, gender fluid/non-binary we want to hear from you.

Currently closed to unsolicited submissions 

Send words (stories and enquiries alike) to ladyboxbooks@gmail.com

This blog is inclusive to QTPOC and marginalized voices. This blog is a space for voices that need to heard whether it’s in storytelling, poetry, essay form or art. I want you to tell me your stories. I want to indulge in your poetry. I want you to show me the art you are creating. This blog is made for those who are unapologetic about who they are. I look forward to reading your magic. For newer voices: I am very open about helping with the editing process if I find a story that entices me. Don’t be intimidated and tell your stories! They are important and only you can tell it.

  1. What ever happened to the short story collection where one of the themes was “how a song ruined a memory”? I believe the deadline for submissions was Feb 14, 2017. Is that collection still going to be published in the future? Have submissions been sorted and rejected/accepted yet?
