Voices from the Attic is an annual anthology featuring the best work of the Madwomen in the Attic Writing Workshops in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, as selected by an editorial team of Madwomen faculty, Madwomen students, and Carlow University undergraduates. Published by Carlow University Press, the anthology is open to both currently and formerly enrolled Madwomen participants.

This roster varies from year to year, depending upon availability and interest, but the group includes Madwomen students and Carlow University graduates.
Submissions open for each new volume in January. Please contact Sarah Williams-Devereux at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on the current year’s deadlines.
All work must be unpublished. You may submit work in one genre only: poetry, fiction, or nonfiction.
Simultaneous submissions to other journals/anthologies are allowed. If another journal/anthology accepts a piece you also submitted to us, and you choose to publish it with them, let us know as soon as possible so we can withdraw your piece from our consideration.
You may submit a maximum of 3-5 poems.
Note: The anthology line length for poems is 60 characters per line (including spaces).
You may submit a maximum of 2-3 pages, double-spaced.
Excerpts from longer pieces should be noted as such.

Voices from the Attic contributors will receive one free copy of the anthology. The copyright reverts to the writer. The published piece is considered a publication and thus could not be sent out to other literary magazines/anthologies; however, it could be included in a book of poems, stories, essays, etc., with credit given in the acknowledgments to Voices from the Attic and Carlow University Press for first publication.
