NewTown Writers Press is accepting submissions for Volume 18 of Off the Rocks, our annual print anthology.

We are seeking poetry and prose from the GLBTQI community and its advocates.

We also invite submissions of photography and artwork to be considered for the anthology’s front cover.

Content of submissions should be PG-13 or lower and should be for and about individuals who identify as queer.

The theme of this year’s anthology is “the very definition of gay.” Ginger Rogers was a gay divorcee. Dorothy Brock just wanted someone to be gay with on 42nd Street. Heck, even The Flintstones promised us a gay old time. Fiction and non-fiction submissions should be a maximum of 5,000 words. Reprints are acceptable. Paste your single-spaced submission into the body of an e-mail. Please only send attachments if you are submitting photography or artwork. Up to three submissions per person permitted.

Submissions for Off the Rocks should be directed to allisonfradkin [at] aol [dot] com. All submissions will be acknowledged and everyone will be notified of the editor’s selections.

Contributors will receive a complimentary copy of the anthology upon publication.

The deadline for submissions is July 15, 2014.
