Foglifter Submission Close for Spring

Foglifter welcomes daring and thoughtful queer work, in all forms. We don’t only publish queer folks, but anyone interested in queering form and/or perspective. We are especially interested in cross-genre, intersectional, marginal, and transgressive work.

(We don’t describe the type of writing we love as experimental, because isn’t all writing an experiment?)

We accept the following unpublished unsolicited submissions

up to 5 poems
up to 7500 words of prose
up to 20 pages of cross-genre work, text-image hybrids, and drama

All submissions must be in one doc or docx file. Title your submission with the title of the work(s) you are submitting (separated by commas).

Please include a 50-word or less bio in your cover letter. (If accepted, we will request an author photo; jpg or png files are best.)

We accept simultaneous submissions; however, please withdraw your piece immediately if it is accepted elsewhere. (To withdraw an individual poem, leave us a note on your submission in Submittable.) Please only submit once per reading period.

Response times will be roughly 8–12 weeks from submission date.
