    Call for Submissions

    A New Anthology Edited by Ariel Gore

    Greetings Portland Queers!

    I’m looking for first-person literary narratives by queer-identified Portland writers for a new anthology showcasing the diversity, hilarity, and talent of emerging and established local writers. Stories can be fiction or nonfiction, but should have a clear Portland connection.

    I’m looking for:

    * Experimental and traditional short stories / short memoirs featuring queer characters
    * Character-driven literary narratives
    * Stories that mention specific Portland neighborhoods, landmarks, haunts, or nearby destinations
    * Up to 5,000 words (shorter pieces welcome)

    I’m not looking for:

    * Opinion essays on what it’s like to be queer in Portland
    * Erotica (sex isn’t taboo– I just don’t want it to be “the point”)
    * How-to or travel pieces
    * And I’m not looking for trouble! Please be prepared to change the names of the guilty.
