Are you a journalist or artist looking to submit your work to About? Find out how here.
Do you have an idea for a great column? Have you been thinking up a great new web series in your head for years? Have you written a book you aren’t sure what to do with?
We’ve got you covered.
About Magazine is now accepting submissions for articles, columns, poetry, essays, and prose. About Editions will be accepting manuscripts for our 2019 catalogue until May 1st, 2018. About Media is also looking for new and exciting video and audio content to be produced. There’s nothing that we will not at least give a glance at. Mind you, our top priority is look at the work of LGBTQIA writers, and their work will be read sooner. That does not mean that we don’t love the writing of our allies; we will get to yours, as well.
So, if you have a story about an awkward hook-up in vain of Less Than Butterflies, or if you’d like to tell a personal essay about your coming out, send it to us. If you’re moved to discuss the number of hate crimes against trans people and how little is being done to stop it, send it our way. If there’s a podcast you’ve always dreamed of hosting, write up a pitch. If you just want to write a poem or shorty story about being queer and want the world to see it, we’ll give it a look.
