Seeking unheard queer voices
BanQuetpress, Australia’s only dedicated publisher of LGBTIQ-themed writing and art, is looking for submissions for its 2013 editions.
BanQuetpress invites submissions of short fiction, non-fiction and artwork by emerging and recently established LGBTIQ writers and artists for two new anthologies of ‘desire, romance and erotica’: banQuet 2013: a feast of new writing and art by Queer Women, and banQuet 2013: a feast of new writing and art by Queer Men.
Established in 2009, banQuetpress’ first publication, banQuet 2010, was an anthology of art and writing by queer Australian women. In 2011, banQuet launched publications by both queer men and women. BanQuet’s mission is to “create publishing opportunities for emerging and recently established queer Australian writers and artists and to provide Australian queer readers stories with a local flavour”.
Owned and operated by Laura Dettori and Deanne Carson and financially supported by the editors and queer community fundraising events, banQuetpress publishes regular anthologies, hosts spoken word performances and holds Writing Dirty Words workshops for authors. Their 2012 titles are available now from Hares & Hyenas in Melbourne, The Bookshop in Sydney or online via their banQuetpress website.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 18.
