Tips from the January Submissions...

  • If we're open enough to reconsider your work and request changes, either make the changes or politely withdraw the piece. Don't re-submit the same story with one or two minor revisions to placate us. We're going to notice; then, we're going to reject your work.

  • It doesn't take an authentic gay person to imbue a work with an authentic gay POV. It takes talent.

  • Please. We beg of more man-hating lesbians.

  • There's a difference between seamlessly weaving keen political commentary throughout the fabric of a story and dropping a political rant into the middle of it. Save the political speeches for Barack Obama - chances are, he's better at them.
