We know the feeling of not being good enough or not qualified to pursue an art career or questioning if we should even consider ourselves as artists. The art world can feel polarizing or inaccessible to new emerging artists. We know what it’s like to feel too self-conscious or too under qualified to pursue an art career because we're going through it too.
IF YOU ARE A NEW ARTIST (OR HAVE EVER QUESTIONED WHETHER YOU CAN EVEN IDENTIFY AS AN ARTIST IN THE FIRST PLACE), SHE’S GOT WONDER IS AN INCLUSIVE AND SAFE SPACE FOR YOU TO SHOWCASE YOUR WORK WITHOUT FEAR OR JUDGEMENT.
Who can submit to She’s Got Wonder?
We accept submissions from womxn/genderqueer/gender non-conforming folks.
Can cis or trans men submit to She’s Got Wonder?
Absolutely! We think it’s important to build solidarity across intersections of identity through art, open conversations, and storytelling. Cis and/or trans men are welcome to share work featuring (or in collaboration with) the womxn/genderqueer/gnc folks who have positively impacted their lives. If you have experienced a meaningful relationship or intimate connection with a womxn/genderqueer/gnc person, SGW would like to create space for your stories. Submissions can include journal entries/videos/images/interviews that highlight the voices and lived experiences of marginalized identities from an empowering, non-objectifying standpoint.
What we accept
If you have a series of photographs that you'd like to share, please send us 10-15 images (can be through Dropbox or WeTransfer) along with a detailed description and example of your previous work.

We want She's Got Wonder to be an inclusive and safe space for everyone, so please do a little bit of research before pitching!
We don't always accept submissions, but that doesn't mean that we don't like your work! It just means that this particular submission wasn't the right fit for us. We encourage you to keep going and keep pitching us ideas in the future. firstname.lastname@example.org
