“Vela publishes longform nonfiction written by women. We are particularly interested in narrative nonfiction, essays with a research and/or reporting component, and literary journalism with a unique, compelling voice. We do publish personal essays and are suckers for powerful personal narratives, but we prefer stories that move beyond the personal realm to consider larger questions and issues. Much of the work we publish is informed by a sense of place and/or journeying, and has an international focus; however, we do not publish conventional travel writing.“ In addition to narrative nonfiction on place/journeying, Vela also publishes a series of columns covering writing, relationship to place, and motherhood.
