Submit to Foglifter Journal

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

Foglifter welcomes daring and thoughtful work by queer and trans writers 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 open for submissions until November 1st—and we are now a paid market!
