Queer SFF

A call for LGBTIQ SF/F short fiction from Crossed Genres. Submissions close end of September, publication date is 1 November.

To complete our first year of publication, Crossed Genres is producing an oversized issue of speculative fiction wth LGBTQ themes.

Submissions will be open through the end of September. We’re looking for short stories (1000-8000 words), artwork (black-and-white) and related articles and essays (500-3000 words). We’ll also consider other formats we don’t usually consider for publication: b&w cartoons, book reviews, personal stories, etc., so long as they relate to the LGBTQ theme. We may also consider some related online-only content such as video or music (please query).

The issue will be released on November 1, and throughout the month of November we’ll be featuring a number of LGBTQ-friendly organizations on our website in our “Website Spotlight” section (Outer Alliance is featured right now). We’ll also be linking to articles of relevance in the “Headlines” section. If you know a website or blog you think should be included as a Spotlight or Headline, email us a link and tell us about it!

We’re very excited about this issue, and are working hard to make it our best one yet. Our purpose in deciding to use this theme in an issue is to help develop and encourage the conversation around queer speculative fiction, and to present some excellent queer spec fic for everyone to enjoy. Please help make it even better by spreading the word!

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
