SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submissions are open now through September 30th for our second issue, Science Fiction.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

Each issue will focus on specific genre. We are looking for pieces that fit well within, as well as those that attempt to break the mold. Classic genre where the characters are queer? Yep! Cross-genre? Sure! Taking typically heteronormative aspects of the genre and subverting their tropes? Absolutely. 

We aim to be a sanctuary for queer folks. Anyone who self-identifies as falling under the vast QUILTBAG spectrum is welcome to submit their work, whether it features queer characters or not.

If you are an allocishet person who writes with queer characters: Thanks for writing about us! We're sure your work will find a lovely home elsewhere.

We especially want to publish works by BIPOC, though folks of all ethnic and racial identities are welcome to submit.

HOW DO I SUBMIT?

Email editor@roulette.lgbt. Include "Submission: [Issue Genre]" in the subject line. Follow guidelines below for fiction, poetry, essays, and art.

FICTION, POETRY, AND ESSAY GUIDELINES

include a link to your high-quality image hosted on a reputable third party site (think google drive, dropbox, imgur, etc.). 

OTHER INFORMATION

  • We pay! Not a lot. But art is valuable, and you deserve money for it. If you want us to pay our writers more, head over to our Patreon!

  • Simultaneous submissions welcome. Please let us know if your piece is accepted elsewhere.

  • Upon acceptance, you retain full rights. We just want to make your art accessible and get you a little money -- it still belongs to you.

  • Please only submit if you are 100% comfortable with us adding content warnings to the head of your piece and table of contents.

Questions? Send an email to editor@roulette.lgbt with "Question" in the subject line.

Less of a question, more of a comment? That's ok, go ahead and put "Feedback" in the subject line.
