1.) We don’t take many current event pieces as with time between acceptance and publication they are often outdated or no longer relevant. But right now we invite Black authors to send us work of any kind, and we will have a section in issue 20 dedicated to amplifying your voices. And, the pieces don’t have to be about current events, or politics (although they can be if that is what you want). Just be a Black author or artist, creating what you love
2.) Also: Happy Pride Month! We still have work to do, but we’re proud of you! And that goes for ALL identities and orientations including QTPOC, two-spirit, trans, queer, bisexual, pansexual, nonbinary, asexual, genderfluid, genderqueer, intersex, demisexual, lesbian, gay, and more!
3.) We will not be accepting COVID-19 works for our September issue. The situation is too fluid, and changing by the day. We will however consider nonfiction pieces on a VERY limited basis, and they would have to be intersectional for us to consider them. If you have or will submit a piece for feedback we will still do feedback on it, and this does not apply to pieces in progress right now.
