Lavender Bluegrass: LGBT Writers on Kentucky
The editors of a new anthology are seeking submissions of poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction essays. We are specifically looking for work from LGBT-identifying writers who are in, from, or have spent time in Kentucky or greater Appalachia.
Send 3-5 poems, double-spaced fiction under 4500 words, or double-spaced creative non-fiction under 4500 words. Cross-genre work is acceptable and encouraged. Please include a cover letter with a short bio and your contact information.
All submissions must be previously unpublished writing. Contributing writers will receive a complementary copy of the final anthology, and may be invited to read at promotional events.
We look forward to reading your work! Deadline December 23, 2015. No fees, no payments.
