$750 for Personal Essays About Horses to Be Published by Harper Collins

Horse Girls is “an anthology that reclaims the horse girl stereotype through personal stories that explore privilege, ambition, traditionally feminine and unfeminine desires, domestication, and wildness.”

It will be published in 2021 by Harper Perennial.

They are looking for essays, particularly from “writers of color, non-binary/trans writers, and southern and midwestern writers.”

According to the call for submissions:

“Each essay will offer a unique perspective on what it means to be a “horse girl,” and how horses shape women’s lives. HORSE GIRLS will be inclusive of a wide range of perspectives, from writers of different regions, ages, economic backgrounds, physical ability, race, gender expression, and sexual orientation. Essays will represent a range of equestrian disciplines and riders of all levels—from aspiring, to hobbyists, to amateurs, to professionals—as well as those involved in the horse world that aren’t necessarily riders.”

They will pay $750 per essay. For details, refer to this Twitter thread and this page.
