The Vigil Center for the Arts & The Voices Project presents

Voices de Queer Femmes Anthology Volume II!

SEEKING SUBMISSIONS from Lesbian, Queer, and Trans Women who identify or present as FEMME!

BE LOUD AND PROUD or quiet and demure but either way LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!!!! You are invited to participate in the second anthology of our voices, a space to express how you navigate life as a Lesbian, Trans or Queer Identified Femme!

This call for submissions will culminate in the printed publication of Voices de Queer Femmes Volume II. We are open to *all types of submissions (including original visual art, poetry, song lyrics, and mixed media)*, but we’re particularly interested in poetry, personal narratives/essays, creative nonfiction, and social commentary submissions. If you are submitting art work or photographs please ensure a high resolution scan, if you need assistance with scanning we can help you. Please feel free to submit work that might need a little work. Experienced editors are available to work with you if you are committed to a piece but feel it is not quite ready for publication.

Deadline for Submissions is December 31st, 2017.

  • Opinion pieces/social commentary: 500-700 words
  • Personal essays: 700-1400 words
