CutBank Literary Magazine Presents a New Summer Web Feature!

Taken from Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons, and the poem “Rooms,” our series title appears in the line: “Cadences, real cadences, real cadences and a quiet color. Careful and curved, cake and sober, all accounts and mixture, a guess at anything is righteous, should there be a call there would be a voice.”

During our submission period, please submit up to 7 poems, 5,000 words of prose or 10 pieces of visual art. We welcome all breeds of creative hybrid and collaboration. For this series, we seek work from writers and artists who self-identify as “queer,” while acknowledging that this designation is subjective and highly personal. We believe the term “queer” connotes flexibility–we will not police your identity.

That said, our goal is to provide a forum for writers and artists whose work might be mis- or underrepresented by the literary mainstream, and we ask that contributors respectfully acknowledge this objective. Submitted content need not be LGBTQ-specific. Work must be previously unpublished. We will accept simultaneous submissions with timely notification.

Allies are encouraged to contribute reviews of poetry and prose by queer authors from books contemporary to historic. We are also seeking provocative interviews with queer writers and artists.

Submit here between May 10 and June 10.

For information on reviews and interviews, please contact

For all other questions, email
