Call for Short Stories: OMGqueer (Bold Strokes Books)

Post date: 04 May 2011
Deadline: 15 October 2011

OMGqueer is soliciting fictional short stories about “being queer” from youth (14-24) across the nation. Use the power of fiction to tell us about coming out (or not), about dating, about sex, about what “family” means to you, etc.

OMGqueer will strive for diversity with respect to the many identity categories that fall under the queer umbrella: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, intersex, etc. Submissions will be judged on the quality of their narratives and diversity of voices.
