**Submissions are now open!!**
Alpha Female Society began with a singular vision between a few young women who wanted to share their hopes, dreams, and plans of action to be the best versions of themselves in their workplace and domestic spheres. We are delighted to share in this vision with you by now accepting guest posts written in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and other forms of creative expression including visual arts.
With a tight knit and loyal group of readers and friends, Alpha Female Society reaches a niche audience of individuals who are actively seeking a space where they can be their most authentic self.
The site has grown steadily since 2015, in large part because openhearted contributors, readers, and followers, like yourself, have been generous in sharing their unique points of view.
Anyone, of any age, race, gender, heritage, and so forth, can submit an original post (not previously published anywhere else, including your own site), with a bio, for inclusion on the AFS blog.
This is not an elite space just for self-described “Alpha Females”. This is not a bourgeois community reserved for experts, thought leaders, or “professional bloggers.” This is not a space for people to say that women are better than or superior to men. This is a blog for anyone simply believes women shouldn’t be limited to either having a great career or having a great personal life. AFS is a blog for people who know and practice the vital importance of work-life integration.
