Collaborate with us

This section of our site includes a variation and combination of images, videos, and written interviews with current and past contributors, as well as other lesbian identified folks. We are open to collaborative duos or groups, or to collaborate together with you. The content does not need to be lesbian themed or oriented, but we ask that artists and contributors identify as dyke/lesbian. WMN will feature each artist(s) via social media and the post will remain on the site permanently.

This area of the site will act as an archive and place of resource/education, resistance and hope. If you or anyone you know has art, poetry/writing, or history to contribute to WMN please let us know at:! 

Please note that visual imagery can cross all mediums, but must replicate well online. We also ask that written submissions are not longer than one full page.
