About Us

Vela is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to publishing and promoting the work of women writers in a space aimed at a general audience, and to encouraging women writers to overcome boundaries and stereotypes in the media industry in order to develop their unique voices.

We believe that a crucial part of addressing the persistent and significant gender gap in publishing is creating a space where editors and readers can encounter exceptional writing by women. We publish long-form nonfiction features and essays, as well as regular columns about the writing life; women in publishing; questions of style, craft, and ethics; and finding a balance between writing and family, writing and academia, and writing and work.
