Don’t miss this list of 21 LGBTQ+ lit mags to submit to. Thanks to the folks at Peculiar for publishing it on their blog!

The listings below are literary magazines/journals that specifically focus on the artists and writers in the LGBTQ+ community. There are many other literary magazines that support LGBTQ+ contributors. For a more general list of all-inclusive/feminist lit mags, check out my list here: Feminist Lit Mags and Journals.

These literary magazines/journals are listed alphabetically; some are currently accepting submissions, some are temporarily closed. I’ve also included whether or not it is a paying market in the notes column. These lit mags/journals also fit the following criteria:

  • Generally do not charge fees to submit (although some may charge fees for some types of submissions and for contests).
  • They accept poetry submissions.
  • All accept electronic submissions.

If you have suggestions for lit mags/journals I’ve missed, please contact me here or leave a comment below.

  1. Hi Trish:

    I’m a subscriber to your blog and really appreciate all the work you put into it. I wonder if you might have any resources for submitting song lyrics and parodies?

    Best, Diane DeCillis

    • Hi Diane, thanks so much for reading! I focus on poetry, so I haven’t noticed anything for song lyrics. I don’t really know anything about that market. Same goes for parodies. Wish I could help! Have a great new year!
