Older Queer Voices: The Intimacy of Survival | Submission Opportunity

Older Queer Voices: The Intimacy of Survival—A call for submissions in response to the harder times that have come back around.
Do you remember surreptitiously flipping through your library’s card catalog to search out who you were and finding only references to “the male homosexual” or “sexuality, aberrant” and no listings at all for gender? Did you strain to hear when your parents lowered their voices to talk about “those” women who lived together in a house at the end of the block? Do you remember the closet? Do remember the Johns Committee? How about the Reagan era when access to women’s, to all people’s, healthcare was curtailed, people with disabilities lost access to key services, and the AIDS crisis emerged?

Those of us who survived these years can help recreate the edifices of care and activism that we once constructed for ourselves and then perhaps abandoned because they were no longer needed. It’s time to reach back and get them. Our experience, the successes we had, the mistakes we made, the voices of those who were left out, and the ways we thrived can be added to the already formidable power of younger generations of queer folk as we gather together in resistance.

Co-editors Sarah Einstein and Sandra Gail Lambert are looking for creative nonfiction and poetry for an online anthology to launch shortly after President Trump is sworn into office. Tell us your stories of not only what you survived, but especially the particular mechanisms of how you found your “people” and the ways you supported and celebrated each other.

Hunger Mountain| Publishing Opportunity

We at The Reverie Journal are trying to create a community where we help each other. Each week, we give you a prompt for writing, we try to highlight one of you (if you’d like to be in the spotlight on Wednesday learn more here) and on Thursdays we post a publishing opportunity. Of course, we’d like for you to publish with us, but as poets we realize that publishing can be a tough part of this journey. We try to help with the burden.

In this week’s publishing opportunity we have Hunger Mountain, which is out of the Vermont College of Fine Arts. They accept  high quality work from unknown, emerging or successful poets. No genre fiction, drama, or academic articles.

Our mission is to cultivate engagement with and conversation about the arts by publishing high-quality, innovative literary and visual art by both established and emerging artists, and by offering opportunities for interactivity and discourse.

Submit using online submission manager.

Managing Editor: Samantha Kolber

Hoot | Publishing Opportunity

Some of the publishing opportunities we share with you are very specialized magazines and journals. This one is a very interesting look at poetry that makes me think along the lines of micropoetry. Remember that you can always submit to our Write for Us segment and that our magazine submissions are now open for the year.

Hoot is a postcard review of mini poetry and prose. Every month they publish one piece of poetry with artwork on a postcard. They look for surprising, brief, stand-on-its-own poetry.
