Submit to Foglifter

Foglifter’s literary journal is a biannual compendium of the most dynamic, urgent LGBTQ+ writing today. It’s a space where queer writers celebrate, mourn, rage, and embrace.

Foglifter welcomes daring and thoughtful queer work in all forms, and we are especially interested in cross-genre, intersectional, marginal, and transgressive work. We want the pieces that challenged you as a writer, what you poured yourself into and risked the most to make. But we also want your tenderest, gentlest work, what you hold closest to your heart. Whatever you’re working on now that’s keeping you alive and writing, Foglifter wants to read it.

What does that look like? Check out writing we love here, here, and here!

Submission periods for our literary journal are:

  • March 1 to May 1 (Fall Edition)
  • September 1 to November 1 (Spring Edition)
  • We are always open for cover art!

Submit to Foglifter

Foglifter is closed for submissions until September 1st—but we are always open for cover art!

Had a really rough past few days & its times like these I'm grateful for communities that support & nurture poetry in a world that does not always do that. @SporkPress & @dorothykchan believing in this poem really means so much to me right now... (1)

Woot! My short story “Troublemaker”, which Foglifter nominated for a Pushcart Prize the other year, is now available to read on their website! It’s a quick magical read about tongue removal and accountability. Check it out: https://bit.ly/DTNTrouble https://twitter.com/foglifterpress/status/1293978247873536001
