Your submission should be a short story between 4,000 and 10,000 words. We are seeking sensual fiction with positive images of gay characters. We're not looking for clich├ęs.

Your submission should be via email to editor@queeredfiction.com with Queer Wolf submission in the subject line. Please embed your short story within the body of the email and provide a brief author bio. Payment will be a 50% royalty split between contributors. Submission period closes 30th November 2008.

Editorial comment on Queer Wolf
What are we looking for? Aside from queer characters, queer community and queer relationships - we're looking for a great fantasy story about werewolves. Red ones, white ones, gray ones and black ones but most certainly queer ones - living together in a community. We'd like to see a community of gay and lesbian werewolves, a queer community background with the emphasis up to the author/story/characters as to whether there is a predominant lesbian or gay main character (or whether that role is dually shared by two).
As a queer publisher, QueeredFiction would like to have an emphasis on the queer community as a whole, rather than by segments. So ideally the perfect submission would have 'queer characters' in the forefront and in the background ... just mainly prominent!
