Call for Submissions: Pixel Heart Literary Magazine – Issue Two

Pixel Heart Literary Magazine is currently open for submissions for its second issue. The theme is ‘Pride’, and the magazine is accepting positive LGBT+ fiction and poetry for this issue, to coincide with the theme.

Pixel Heart publishes flash fiction (under 750 words), poetry (of any length), and short stories (1,000 – 2,500 words).

There is no submission fee, and we’d love to read anything you’d like to send to us, whether you’re a new or experienced writer. In this issue we’re aiming to publish as many LGBT+ writers as possible, and, as always while all submissions are considered with care, if writers state in their submission email that they are people of colour, disabled, working class, and/or LGBT+ then their submission will be given a little extra attention.

So if you’re a writer with a positive LGBT+ story or poem, we’d love to read and consider it, so please consider submitting to us!

For our more specific submission guidelines and info on how to submit, please click here. Submissions for Issue Two are currently open until midnight BST on December 15th, 2018. ❤
