Ooligan Press seeks creative nonfiction and personal essays from LGBTQ writers of the Pacific Northwest for the anthology More than Marriage (working title). The anthology will add fresh voices to an ongoing conversation about queer equality, with the understanding that the national focus on gay marriage may not answer the most pressing concerns for many members of the community. These include, but are not limited to, experiences with healthcare and employment, definitions of family and partnerships that extend beyond the nuclear or monogamous traditions, definitions of home, explorations of visibility, of equality, and more. What is important to you? We seek diverse perspectives and strongly encourage trans* writers, writers of color, rural and working class writers to submit.

Authors should identify as LGBTQ. Submissions should have some relationship to the Pacific Northwest. Authors may submit up to four previously unpublished pieces of no more than 5,000 words each to https://ooliganpress.submittable.com/submit. Please include email contact information and a 100 word bio.

Deadline to submit is November 15, 2013.
