Fahmidan Publishing & Co. Submissions







Publishing Submissions will not be open again until 2025.

Our publishing arm of Fahmidan, Fahmidan Publishing & Co, is only open to POC & Women identifying writers.

We open twice a year for Chapbook Submissions:

February 1st-28th 2025 Digital Chapbook Submissions

November 1st-30th 2025 Print Chapbook Submissions


The publishing arm of Fahmidan was created in November 2020 and began operations in February 2021 to address the disadvantageous, unequal and divisive nature of the publishing world. Fahmidan is the home of POC & Women identifying writers ardent in battle against subjugation and our desire is to ensure the longevity and continued success of both our own writers, and those submitting to us whether accepted or declined.
