Accepting submissions until November 30, 2016

A call out to queer femmes of all genders to share your writing (stories/poems/essays of all lengths) /art /whatever about:

– Rejection
– Pet peeves
– Existentialism
– Favourite whiny lyrics/playlists/poems (pls remember to give credit)

We want to embrace the beauty of COMPLAINING. Often times in a patriarchal society whininess is dismissed and frowned upon, especially for femme folks (& femmes at the intersection of multiple oppressions). We hope this compilation validates the tenderness you suppress in everyday life.

This can be an opportunity to whine OR to talk about struggles, the power of voice, & coping/self-care as a whiner. ♥

Nudity will not be censored.
Consider including a Trigger Warning at the beginning of your piece.

If you have questions, ideas to discuss, or need guidance on the use of trigger warnings, email us!

Send your submission to Julia & Christina @ whinyfemmes@gmail.com by Nov 30 with:
– your name to publish (or let us know if you prefer to stay anon)
– an optional one sentence bio
