What is the “Imagoes Anthology Project?”

With this anthology, we are primarily concerned with showcasing emerging queer writers. We are looking for work that centers the deliberate act of living for yourself and naming your experience. Please send us fearless work (poetry or prose) that is transgressive, brave, and fresh. We are looking for your best work. Writers are to submit no more than 7 poems (not to exceed 10 pgs.) to “[email protected]

All submissions are due by Oct. 31, 2018. (Make the Subject: Imageoes) or your submission will not be routed properly. We have an expected release date of June 2019 for the anthology.

Please attach a cover letter and bio to your submissions. We look forward to reading your work.

    Will you accept work from asexual writers?

    I am the editor for this anthology. Yes there is a 10 page limit on prose as well

    I am the editor of this anthology and we most definitely would accept work from folks who consider themselves a-sexual

    I was wondering if there was an age limit for this contests (i.e would high schoolers under 18 be able to submit)?
    Thanks again!

    is it ok to send submissions previously published elsewhere?

    Two questions.

    Will a submitter recieve a confirmation email once they have submitted.

    The subject should be Imageoes not Imagoes?
