Hello,

While I'm aware that this is a poetry list, some subscribers may also write
fiction and, if they also happen to be Australian and to sleep with same-sex
partners, they may want to take up this invitation:
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
UNPUBLISHED SHORT FICTION
BY AUSTRALIAN LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDERED AUTHORS

DEADLINE: August 1, 2001

Blithe House Quarterly
http://www.blithe.com/

Blithe House Quarterly, the leading online journal of lesbian and gay
literary fiction, is pleased to open submissions for its 2001 Australian
Spring issue, which will exclusively feature Australian writers.

Now in its fifth year of online publication, Blithe House Quarterly features
new short stories by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT)
authors
-- both emerging and established.   With an average of over 24,000 readers
per issue, Blithe House Quarterly is the most widely read of LGBT literary
periodicals.  OUT Magazine has called us "the central publishing arm of new
queer fiction."   A recipient of Encyclopaedia Britannica's Internet Guide
Award, we are also a featured site on Lycos, Snap, and several other
Internet
hubs.

Suite101.com writes: "Blithe House Quarterly is an electronic magazine up to
the standards of print."  In fact, our literary standards our higher than
those of many print media.  We publish LGBT fiction not as a genre or
ghetto,
but as a literature that can stand by any other in its quality and
innovation.  A key guide to the gay and lesbian Internet said:

"Setting the quality bar [for gay and lesbian writing] is the phenomenal
site
Blithe House Quarterly.  It's awash in awards and rightly so.  Of all gay
and
lesbian sites, Blithe House is the golden child, the one to be entered in
the
Literature Olympics.  None of the stories needs special cosseting as our
fiction.  Be skeptical and go see the site!"
- GAY & LESBIAN ON LINE, 3rd Edition

Agents and editors read BHQ, especially in North America, so appearing in
BHQ
can be a great way to be noticed in the North American market.  Stories
first
published in Blithe House Quarterly have been reprinted in MEN ON MEN, BEST
AMERICAN GAY FICTION and in numerous short story collections.

The 2001 Australian Spring issue will be edited by Jarrett Walker, who has
lived in Australia and is an admirer of its many landscapes, including the
literary one.  Mr. Walker edits male fiction for most issues of BHQ, but has
also edited entire issues, which are typically balanced between male and
female writers.

For guidelines on submission, please see the site at http://www.blithe.com/.
Stories must be previously unpublished, fictional (as opposed to memoir),
and
usually 2500-7500 words in length.  We recommend reading stories in recent
issues.  For a sample of a regionally-specific issue, see Issue 3.3
(Northern
Summer '99), on the Cascadian region of North America, also edited by
Jarrett
Walker.

If you have questions after reading the site's submission guidelines and
Frequently Asked Questions, please direct them to Jarrett Walker at
