Swamp Bitch Books is an imprint of Cedar Grove Publishing that focuses on works by LGBTQIA people of color. Its first annual anthology is scheduled for release in 2018, so right now it’s looking for 10 short stories that are:
- written by LGBTQIA people of color
- speculative fiction (fantasy, science-fiction or horror)
- 1,000 to 8,000 words
- written or translated into English
- well written
- not a typical vampire or zombie story
Payment is 10¢ per word for the first 5,000 words and 8¢ for each word over 5,000, in exchange for first world electronic rights (text and audio) and first print rights. Deadline is August 30, 2017.

This blog is queer-friendly. I strive to ensure that all submission calls I post are open to works with queer/LGBTQIA characters and themes. I do this by checking the publisher's back catalog, submissions policies,or business practices, or by communicating with the publisher directly.
Please contact the publisher through the links in the post if you have questions about a submission call. Contact me if you've had a bad experience with a publisher featured here.
If you find these posts helpful, you can help keep this blog running by buying me a coffee.
