We are a new literary magazine focusing on awesome stories featuring queer protagonists. We accept all mediums (short stories, flash fiction, poetry, comics, and art), all genres (fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, paranormal, mystery, thriller – bring it on!), all sexualities, and all genders
Our goal is to create an escape for the reader by telling entertaining, interesting stories featuring queer protagonists but where the plot does not revolve around their sexuality or gender. A positive portrayal of queerness is key. We are currently working on a promotional minizin” that will be offered to readers for free on our website, in anticipation of launching a kickstarter.
Submissions for the minizine are due Sept 25th. We offer a token payment of $10-25 depending on the medium. After the minizine, we begin work on the first issue. Anything submitted now could be published in the minizine or the first issue depending on where it fits. To find out more, visit the submissions page of our website.
