Deadline: December 15th, 2010

Saltwater Press is a new online literary magazine devoted to publishing works by underrepresented authors. I’m writing to encourage you to submit fiction, poetry, or creative non-fiction for the first issue, scheduled for publication in January 2011. While this online journal does not yet have work that you can review, please keep in mind that we are looking for the following:’

  • Work that shines a light on underrepresented communities, primarily focusing on but not limited to LGBTQ communities
  • Work that exemplifies craft and technique and uses both successfully
  • Work that subverts or revises traditional forms to illustrate the experience of underrepresented communities
  • Work that surprises and moves the reader

Please feel free to contact me at with any questions.


Deadline: December 15th, 2010

I look forward to reading your submissions!

Katie McClendon
Editor, Saltwater Press

    I enjoy reading Lambda literary for information .
    I am a published author of both fiction and non-fiction but especially writing ,prose and drama, about and for the younger generation.
    I am interested in the Saltwater comment of calling for material from unrepresented author(who is ?) . Would Saltwater be interested in publishing ‘chapter in book’ before publication of that book -to be published POD by the author?

      Sounds like a question for the Saltwater editors. Please reach out to them directly.

    Hi Petronella,

    We are looking for quality writing about and by members of queer and poc communities and would love to take a look at what you’ve written. If a chapter stands on its own as complete and follows our other guidelines, we’d love to include it. Please review our Submission Guidelines by following the link in the above post. Thanks!

    Katie McClendon, Editor
