So what's exactly the tea? 


The Deadline:

From July 1, 2021 through August 30, 2021, Hot Redhead Media will accept submissions of short fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, interview, and mixed media.

Submissions sent early without an explicit invitation or not according to guidelines will be deleted without response.


Otherwise, submitters should expect to hear back by October 2021. No simultaneous submission. No reprints.

The What:

For AUDACIOUS WOMEN, we seek creative work that embraces the concept of women fully occupying their space, having or developing new agency, and trailblazing the roads for more powerful futures. We invite submissions from all genders and orientations. The anthology vibe is smart and celebratory. Best case submissions are work that makes us laugh, cry, and think deeply about the ways that women can come to the world as influencers, as sages. We seek pieces that embrace the concept of women with three-dimensionality, diversity in how “Audacious Women” can be interpreted. We want your best. Anything submitted that smacks of misogyny will be deleted without response.


Word and page limits:

Prose flash and short fiction word count limits: Up to 5000 words

Poetry guidelines: 3-5 pages

Non-fiction and interviews: Up to 3000 words

Artwork: Up to 4 pieces for consideration

Rights Acquired:

Accepted authors and artists must be willing to be interviewed about their contributions and featured on the HRM website and social media posts. Starting July 1, submissions may be sent to hotredheadmedia at



Payment is one contributor copy, fame, acclaim, and a cup of coffee on the editors.
