LGBT+ Anthologies

Signal 8 Press will be publishing a two-volume anthology series of LGBT+-themed writing from the Asia-Pacific region in late 2018. There will be one volume of original short fiction, and one of nonfiction. Some reprinted work may also be included. The authors themselves should either be residents (current or former) of the Asia Pacific region. Asian or Pacific Islander ethnicity is not a requirement for consideration, but it’s a plus. Expats are welcome to contribute, as one of the goals of this series is to provide a snapshot of LGBT+ life in the region. However, it is not expected that this will be an expat-dominated project. The same goes for writers from the Asian diaspora: if you’re interested in contributing, please query. As far as straight allies are concerned, we appreciate them very much but for this project, LGBT+ identity is essential for consideration. For the fiction and nonfiction books, we are looking for stories from roughly 2000 – 6000 words. Although a certain erotic element may be germane to the tale, we are not looking for stories of sexual conquest or sexpat memoirs. Neither book will carry images.

Deadline for submissions: March 31, 2018
Submissions towards these anthologies is FREE.
