the Same is an online literary journal with the mission of advancing and celebrating the voices of women and girls. 

We only accept admissions from women.

We publish a yearly print anthology of the best work we receive throughout the year.

We nominate for the Pushcart Prize.

Please send only unpublished work.
We will be donating 12.5% of each entry fee for our writing contests to nonprofit organizations that empower women and girls!

“Editor's Workshop” is a category for writers who would simply like some constructive criticism on their Essay or Short Story work in progress. We will read your work and respond within two weeks with an in-depth critique of your work and will correspond with you to workshop your piece.

This is our only category that is open to both women and men. While only women's work will be considered for publication in our online journal, we are happy to support the writing of men and boys through the workshopping process.
