Note: 4W is not currently accepting new submissions this summer. Check back in September!

4W now offers a platform for any woman to publish articles relevant to our feminist and heterodox audience. We are always looking to expand our base of contributors. If you're a radical, gender-critical, or "fourth wave" feminist with a story to tell—we want to hear from you!

We offer two publishing tracks:

2) 4W Commission Program

We partner with some of our top writers to offer commission for their best stories. Articles that go through our commission program must be approved prior to publishing, and authors are expected to work with our editors as needed. Commission rates are negotiable depending on the content and audience the author brings to the platform.

To pitch an article for our commission program, please email [email protected].
