Call for Submission - Lesbian Fiction, Lesbian Non-Fiction, Lesbian Poetry

At Stone Soup Community Press, Inc., we believe the diversity which exists within our community should be reflected in the stories we publish. We focus primarily on publishing short stories compiled into themed anthologies. However, we also accept novella and novel-length works of fiction, as well as non-fiction and poetry.

We publish lesbian fiction in the following categories:

  • Romance

  • Mystery

  • Action/thriller

  • Science-fiction

  • Fantasy

  • Erotica

  • General Fiction

  • Young Adult

We are looking for submissions which step outside the traditional formulas of the sub-genres. We want stories that include all forms of diversity within our community.

We want protagonists of all colors, all ages, all economic statuses, all shapes and sizes, all abilities and health status. We want stories that don't necessarily have a traditional HEA ending. We want protagonists who identify as straight, bisexual, transgender, confused, questioning, experimenting, not into labels, etc. so long as they are in or pursuing a woman loving a woman relationship if an intimate relationship is featured in the story.

We are looking for diversity in our authors as well. Your sexual orientation, gender identity, color, economic status, health status, etc. doesn't matter so long as you've written a well-crafted and compelling story.

Call for Submission - No 45 A Stone Soup Anthology

In one day, and with one vote, our lives changed with the election of the 45th President of the United States. The impact of that event was felt worldwide and just as deeply within the LBGTQ community.  

Now we are looking for lesbian stories, fiction, and non-fiction, poetry, essays, anything about fears imagined and realized. Stories about how our lives have been impacted by this election, and this Administration. Stories about our hopes and dreams, and our nightmares. Stories about those of us who have lived through these attitudes for the first time around and thought we were past fighting for these basic rights. Stories about those of us who never experience these type of things and how we're dealing with it now. Let us seek solace and solidarity together with pen and prose. 

We're looking for poems of any length, short stories or essays between 6,000 and 8,000 words. Please send your submissions via the submission form by 12 Noon, November 11th 2017.
