Feminist Publication Calling For Submissions
Hey I’m Ben, from Poems-and-Lyrics
I started this blog last year with the idea of posting nothing but poetry and lyrics of all kinds, from the Edgar Allan Poe’s to Andrea Gibson’s shows to the Tumblr writer’s woes and even the musicians that are pro. I showcase any and all forms of poetry and hope to make your work known to the world!
As a side note, I’m still looking for another member or two to join my blog. So if you seriously know you can post a few things at least once a week just send me an ask and tell me a bit about yourself! If made a member you will be featured on my “P-a-L Team” page as well as all of your work (that you post) be featured on the “Member Poetry” page!
Thanks a lot for reading this!
Letters For Malala
I feel this is the best place to go to let people know that I have started a tumblr to collect messages for the injured Rights Activist Malala Yousafzai. It’s called lettersformalala and so any one who would like to send a message of support to a fellow writer please send them here to be passed on.
For those of you who don’t know about Malala she is a 14 year old Pakistani girl who at the age of 11 started a blog about life as a schoolgirl under the Taliban. She won several literary prizes and a Bravery Award. But because she spoke out for the right of girls to be educated, four days ago the Taliban tried to kill her.
She is currently being treated at a hospital in the UK not to far from me so I am willing to pass on any messages that other writers may have for one of their own.
Thank you very much for promoting this for me.
Feminist Zine Accepting Submissions

Come get bitten by the Writing Bug!
There are no universal rules to writing. There is nothing that cannot be challenged; there is nothing that cannot be changed. It is with this in mind that Writing Bug looks at the standards of Western literature and internet discourse on the craft to see what we accept and how we can twist it. We seek to find problems and persistent issues in the industry and in the community, and address how those things can become something different, something… better.
Writing Bug loves discourse and challenging the status quo. We’ll ask you “why?” just to see somebody defend their point-of-view. We’re devil’s advocates and writing activists. We’ll reblog interesting posts on writing trends, link to resources on the web, answer any questions sent to our ask box, offer a different brand of critique, and post our own thoughts on things that just seem universal and how those things can be just a little better.
Come get bitten by the Writing Bug!
