What does Room publish?

Room publishes fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and art by women (cisgender and transgender), transgender men, Two-Spirit and nonbinary people. Room’s quarterly issues are edited by a rotating team of editors from our collective, and as such many tastes and interests are represented. Of our four issues, two have themes that are chosen in advance by the editors; for these issues, calls for submissions have specific deadlines. The other two issues are unthemed, in which we seek the best work by emerging writers and artists; work for these issues can be sent to us at any time throughout the year. We aim to publish work that expresses the complex, nuanced, and truly rich interior and exterior lives of a broad variety of folks.
