Woman in language & meaning is not solely based on one ideal, but a series of ever growing movements within the modern woman:continuing the fight for transgender & gay equality, women's rights, non-discrimination, & turning archaic ideals of a woman's place, sexuality, & body around on their foundations. A woman is not defined by her body. A woman is not defined by her birth. A woman is not defined by another man [or woman]. Women have built new foundations to define themselves individually, while coming together to verse their collective power in politics, literature, & the entertainment industry.

White Stag wants work from Self-identified women. We want to highlight work by women; poetry, prose, & creative non-fiction that provides a lens into the various dimensions of women in the current world, from the micro to the macro level (whatever that may be for you, as a woman). There is no specific theme in terms of content, but we want strong voices, voices that will tattoo their words onto our readers' skulls, memories that will both haunt & elevate our being. Send us work with powerful, transformative language that will enlighten & heighten the "average woman" as nothing less than extraordinary.

Goddesses, sing to us!
