Membership in Nasty Woman Press is entirely free, and we welcome members from around the world. You must be a member in order to submit a story or article for one of our anthologies. Donations are NOT tax deductible as we are a 501 (c)(4) non-profit corporation.

Please join us—your only requirement is humanity!

How to apply

Just fill out the form on this page! You’ll need to answer two questions and tell us in a sentence or two why you’d like to join. You will then be presented with a brief statement with which to agree and a membership rules box to check.

Thank you, and we hope to see you in the Creative Resistance!
