Most events are installed on their deadline date, unless there is a long submission window or unless it's a rolling submission.
P=Poetry, N=Nonfiction, F=Fiction
In decay, there is devotion. Through flesh, we express our desire. The grotesque and unsettling, the terrifying and unholy, the bare and exposed. Sinking teeth into the body of your lover or the lick of salt from sweat or tears or blood… how does your ButchFemme devotion become realized in the flesh?
For the third issue of Beloved, we want to see your interpretations on the theme of Flesh. Send us your ButchFemme horror, present us with the beauty of the grotesque, show us how touch and devotion and consumption embody your ButchFemme identities and desires.
You are absolutely welcome to submit more than one piece for review, but please divide your pieces into SEPARATE submissions unless your work is all part of one collection (ex: if you are submitting multiple different poems, please only submit one per application unless they are all part of the same collection).
Please do not submit to our publication if your work is not somehow related to ButchFemme/StudFemme culture, identities, or experiences. Please be sure that all work submitted ties back to the central topic and theme of “Flesh”! Feel free to take a look at our mood board to get inspired, and if you have any hesitance on whether or not your piece fits the theme, just submit it anyway! We’d love to see it either way. 🙂
NOTE: We are currently only accepting works from applicants who are 18+!
