Call for Black Gay & Lesbian Writing


Mighty Real : An Anthology of New Black Gay and Lesbian Writing
Edited by Royce Bryant Smith and Darius Omar Williams

This is a call for submissions for a book entitled Mighty Real: An
Anthology of New Black Gay and Lesbian Writing with an introduction
by one of the most groundbreaking writers from the same gender loving
community. Due to a previous submission call which resulted in a
limited number of submissions, we've decided to broaden our call to
the entire black gay and lesbian community regardless of regional
location. The anthology will offer a collection of poetry, fiction
and essays by black gay and lesbian writers throughout the U.S. and
abroad. Not only will this book reflect contemporary issues of
racism, sexism and homophobia, it will give literary and political
voice to the experiences of brothers and sisters from numerous black
SGL communities. Finally, this book will introduce new black gay and
lesbian writers in addition to introducing new work by more
established writers.

Please submit five poems, three short stories or a critical essay on
a topic of your choice reflective of your individual identity and
aesthetic. Feel free to submit work from all three genres. Documented
articles should follow MLA format. Previously published work WILL NOT
be accepted. Please mail two hard copies of your submission along
with full contact information and a short bio (to be included in
anthology) to:
