Call for submissions: Anthology of Indian gay men’s short fiction
After being India’s leading online LGBT publication for seven years and launching the magazine in its print version last month, we are glad to announce our first anthology- to be out in print early next year.
What is the Anthology all about?
The anthology will be a collection of modern short fiction by Indian gay men. We are looking at stories that capture the varied experiences of modern gay life in twenty-first century India. Also, it aims to be a platform for both emerging and established writers and artists within the Indian LGBT community.
What can we contribute?
Submissions can be in the following categories-
- Short fiction: Within 7000 words, submit in MS Word format.
- Graphic stories: With only black and white art work for the purpose of consistency in format. Submit in PDF for preview and open source file can be shared later if your submission is selected.
- Poetry: Not greater than 60 lines, submit in MS Word format.
Please note that all submissions must be original works that have not been previously published, or shared with any other publisher.
How do we submit our entries?
Submissions can be made over email to [email protected] with “Anthology Submissions” in the subject line. Please also attach your short bio/CV, a high resolution photograph and references to some previously published works (if any).
We will get back to you within three weeks of submission on whether we will be using your piece in the anthology. We will try our best to adhere to this timeline, however just in case you do not hear back from us within three weeks- please do not hesitate to drop us a line.
Remuneration for contributors
Each contribution will be given a cash remuneration of Rs.3000 and two complimentary print copies of the anthology.
Last date for submissions
The last date for submissions is 30th September, 2016. In case you need a slight extension, please send across a pitch, tentative length of the final script and a confirmed date of submission from your end.
