Room magazine invites unpublished writing on any theme for our upcoming issue, 41.2, edited by Kayi Wong and assistant edited by Geffen Semach. Issue 41.2 will feature new work by Katherena Vermette, the winners of our 2017 fiction, poetry, and cover art contests, and an interview with Durga Chew-Bose.
Deadline: October 31, 2017
Our next call for submissions is for issue 41.3 "The Queer Issue"
Room magazine invites women and genderqueer folks who identify as part of the LGBTTQIA+ spectrum to submit their best poetry, fiction, CNF, and art to our first queer-themed issue. We especially encourage submissions from writers affected by multiple intersections of oppression, such as racism, classism, ableism, fatphobia, ageism, and transphobia.
This issue is a celebration of emerging and established queer writers and artists; the creative work itself does not have to be queer in focus. Do you want to queer genre? Create a poem about the corporatization of Pride? Or just write microfiction on the minutiae of daily living? All types of submissions are welcome.
New work by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha will also be featured in this issue.
Submissions are accepted from November 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018.
