Minerva Rising

Literary Journal


Minvera Rising serves as a showcase for women, publishing fiction, poetry, and essays alongside artwork and photography. The triannual magazine has a distinct creative bend and explicitly avoids both hard journalism and pure opinion pieces. Minvera Rising charges hefty reading fees—but donates them to female writers and charities.
