We’re excited to announce a call for submissions to our magazine!

Peach Tea is a new online magazine for Southern femmes of all flavors.

Are you queer, femme, and/or Southern? An activist, artist, writer? We want to hear from you!

What we want

We’re looking for original artwork, dispatches, guides/how-tos, independent reporting, interviews, music reviews, personal essays, poetry, short stories, survivor stories, videos, product/venue reviews, and anything related to the South.

All are welcome to submit, but we want to hear particularly from Southern women, femmes regardless of gender, queer/trans folks, people of color, poor folks, and rural folks living in the Southeastern United States.

While our website is in English, bilingual/multilingual content is also welcome.

We prefer original work, but published work is certainly welcome.


Please include a short (2-3 sentence) description of yourself, including where you’re from, along with a short description of your submission.

The pitch itself should be 1-3 paragraphs describing what you’d like to write about, including a tentative thesis, social context, and relevance. Please include “pitch” and a tentative title in the subject line.

Of course, you’re also free to submit completed work. For written work, please attach as a .docx or .odt file.

We’re looking for essays 400+ words in length. Other pieces are free to be of any size. All written pieces should include “written submission” in the subject line.

Audiovisual submissions should be as high quality as possible, submitted as PNG or JPEG files for images (photography, comics, artwork) or via link for music and videos. Include “audiovisual submission” in the subject line.

Send all pitches and submissions to
