GRANDE DAME LITERARY JOURNAL

is a publication that accepts stories (fiction/memoir) based on the merit of the writing and the vibrancy of one's voice. We are a fledgling publication that rose out of the ashes of rejection. Submitting short stories and short memoir is free. As fellow women writers of a certain age, we know too well the soul-crushing blow when piece after piece gets rejected. Voices that are graced with the element of time and hold the wisdom acquired from a life well-lived have a home on this blog.

“I've been called many things as a woman: loud, outspoken, too much. I'd like to be known as vibrant.”

— Jami Hunt-Williams, Author

“I have never been so delighted to receive a rejection letter. Thank you to the editor that took the time to read my story, give it some thought,
and send me feedback.”

— Stephanie Miller, Author
