*Please note, The Fertile Source is currently on a submission hiatus; we will post a note here when we are open again for submissions. In the meantime, please check our website for updates on the upcoming Fertile Source Poetry Anthology (featuring poems paired with interviews) scheduled for release in the summer of 2014. We are still accepting guest posts at our sister site, Mother Writer Mentor.
The Fertile Source accepts photos, artwork, literary essays, poems, and fiction on fertility-related themes. We also accept book and magazine reviews on fertility-related publications, and will consider interviews with fertility, infertility, and adoption specialists.
And yes, “fertility-related themes” include infertility, abortion, miscarriage, and adoption as well as childbirth, pregnancy, birth control, sex, postpartum depression, breastfeeding, and becoming a parent. Please note that parenting topics are fine, but must directly relate to fertility.
Nonfiction and fiction submissions are currently closed. Poetry submissions should be sent to the Kate Bonnici at kate [at] catalystbookpress.com from September 2012-August 2013. Otherwise, poetry submissions should be sent to Tania Pryputniewicz at tania [at] catalystbookpress.com. For poetry, please send 2-4 poems in the body of the email. If that messes up line breaks, please send as an ms word doc or an .rtf (rich-text-format) file.
