The Wide Shore is a global literary journal dedicated to connecting women’s voices.

We are committed to publishing poetry that reveals and unearths that which has been hidden, masked, buried, or unexpressed. We invite newly translated works by women whose voices have yet to reach wider shores. The Wide Shore sets out on a course traveled by our mentors. As Gwendolyn Brooks wrote, we are each other’s / harvest: / we are each other’s / business: / we are each other’s / magnitude and bond.
