The Snowflake Anthology

Snowflake magazine is looking for submissions of art, poetry, essays, flash fiction, photography, interviews and articles from self-identifying queer creators. We are happy to consider pieces that transcend or do not fit these mediums. Being queer already often sits outside the norm, so we encourage your pieces to do the same - really think outside the box!

The submission itself should either be queer themed or from an artist who identifies as LGBTQ+ (or both!).

Our first ever Annual Snowflake Anthology! Join us in celebrating some of the less focused, wild and chaotic sides to Queerdom with ‘SUBMIT ANYTHING’ as our theme for this special issue.  Each previous issue has asked for and presented a specific feel, voice or concept; we have asked you to interpret and redesign ideas we put forward, but this time, you get to decide the theme, the tone, the style.

  • What specific things do you personally believe will become important in the distant future?

  • If you could summon an angel or a demon or spirit to ask for a gift, what would it be, and what do you feel the consequences may be, good or bad?

  • What is your favourite memory of playing a board game or video game?

  • Are there any unusual geographic landmarks near where you live? What do you imagine created them? How old are they?

  • How old is ‘old’? Do you think of food leftovers getting mouldy, or a grey-furred aging pet? Do you think of older people, generations before, historical texts, ancient civilisations or the concept of the entire universe being over 13 billion years old?

  • What food always makes you nostalgic, or brings forward an important memory for you?

  • In book publishing, an anthology is a collection of literary works chosen by the compiler; it may be a collection of art, plays, poems, short stories, songs or excerpts by different authors. With this in mind, do you feel a kinship with
