This pride month, we want to showcase and celebrate the voices of as many LGBTQ+ writers as possible, and we want to hear from you!
How can you get involved?
If you identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and have any fiction, non-fiction or poetry to share with the world, please send them our way to celebrate this pride month. We welcome any pieces that discuss LGBTQ+ identities, celebrate diverse and inclusive love, queer characters and also those which bring to light the issues members of this community face. However, do not fret if you feel like your writing does not fall into these categories! We also just want to support and promote LGBTQ+ writers this month, so please still send your writing our way!
Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Pride Submission’ in the subject line. Make sure you let us know if you would like your name published with your writing, or if you would prefer for it to be shared as anonymous, as well as any social media and blogs you have to share.
Is there a deadline?
There won’t be a deadline for pride submissions, however we encourage you to get your submissions over as soon as possible to ensure they can be published this month for pride celebration. We hope to get as many pieces up over the month as possible as they come in. If you are seeing this post after pride month is over, we publish writing all year round and would still love to hear from you! Please visit this page for more details.
We hope you will join us in celebrating Pride Month 2020, and we can’t wait to read and share your submissions! Don’t hesitate to leave any questions in the comments below.
