CFP: Iris | New Fiction 1.1, Identity (Deadline: 1 November 2013)
Iris | New Fiction is a new literary magazine that publishes short fiction and poetry on LGBTQ themes for young adults. We seek original writing that engages in some way with LGBTQ issues, whether through queer protagonists, straight allies, setting, etc. We aim to be a place to challenge and captivate young adult readers between the ages of 14 - 17. As we anticipate readers younger than our target demographic, we ask that all submissions to Iris be free of sex, violence, and drug use. For more information and to view our guidelines for submissions, please visit our website at http://www.irisnewfiction.org .
We invite submissions for Volume 1, Issue 1: Identity. Just as our readers are growing up and discovering who they are, so too is Iris. Please submit your poetry and short fiction (under 2,000 words) through our submissions manager, accessible through http://www.irisnewfiction.org/submissions . We will accept submissions through 1 November 2013.
