Via Lambda Literary: Chelsea Station, a new magazine of gay writing, will be published four to six times a year by Chelsea Station Editions. We accept for consideration original and unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essays, memoir, humor, narrative travelogue, interviews, and reviews (books, theater, television, and film) relating to gay literature and gay men.
Deadline for Issue 1 (November 2011) is October 1, 2011. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manuscripts should be emailed as Word attachments. Please include your name, address, and e-mail contact information on the first page of your document. Please also include a brief bio. Please query before sending any artwork.
Please do not send more than one prose work or more than four poems for consideration. Please query if you would like to submit work for consideration in more than one genre for an issue. If you do not hear from us within three months of your submission, we are unable to use your submission, though you are always able to submit additional material for us to consider. If you would like to know more about what sort of writing we will consider, our inspirational model for Chelsea Station magazine is the former Christopher Street magazine (1976-1995). While we are open to all sorts of experimental forms, we tend to gravitate to more traditional literary writing. We also welcome recommendations for material and writers for consideration.
We currently do not offer monetary payment to contributors. Contributors receive a complimentary pdf edition of the issue in which their work is featured.
Current issues will be available as free pdfs for download from the publisher’s Web site (www.chelseastationeditions.com) during the initial month of publication only.
Print and digital issues will be available for purchase through bookstores and Web retailers. Subscriptions will also be available.
The deadline for Issue 2 will be December 1, 2011.
