NewTown Writers, Chicago’s premier GLBT writing group, is pleased to announce a request for submissions to its newest publication, Gay and Gray!

In an attempt to begin to collect what can only be a myrid of writing and wisdom from ‘the older gay writer/artist,’ NewTown Writers is seeking:

Creative non-fiction, short stories, fiction or memoir, poetry, digital imagery, and photography from the mature GLBTQ community. Fiction and non-fiction submissions should be a maximum of 5,000 words. Each writer may submit three pieces for consideration. Reprints are acceptable as long as the author retains the copyright.

Submissions should be sent as attachments to an email and NOT pasted into the body of the e-mail.  Incorrect submissions will not be read.  Multiple submissions are welcome and should be sent in separate e-mails. ALL submissions must be in 12-point Times New Roman, single-spaced.  All authors must be willing to be edited.

IMPORTANT: Authors should include a photo when possible. The photo may be taken from any point in the author’s life. Also please include a brief biography.

While there is no specific theme, content may focus on aging in the gay community, historical hindsight and/or perspective unique to the GBLTQ person 50 and older.

E-mail submissions for GAY AND GRAY should be sent to:
submit2gayNgray@aol.com

DEADLINE: April, 30, 2011.
All writers will be notified of the editor’s selections.
