All submissions for Issue 03 due by September 5th!
What do we accept?
This includes paintings, collages, sketches, digital art, photography, photography of a traditional piece (ex: embroidery, textile work, sculpture, etc).
This includes poems, short stories, plays, scripts, articles, editorials, etc.
If you have something else unlisted that you would like to contribute (ex: music, a short film, a curated playlist), submit it anyway! We'll see what we can do. Digital media can always be featured in print as long as it is something we can generate a QR code for.
Please do not submit to our publication if your work is not somehow related to ButchFemme/StudFemme culture, identities, or experiences.
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 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+!
If you have any questions, please feel free to email us if it is not listed under our FAQ!
What's our Autumn Theme?
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.
Submissions will remain open until September 5th. You can take a more in-depth look at our theme and its guidelines here, and submit through the link below by September 15th!
