Anthology II

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!).

It has become somewhat of a tradition now for us to round out the year with a collection of some of the finest work our community has to offer. Anthology II does not have a theme, and we encourage our writers, sculptors, painters, photographers, graphic designers, tailors, tinkerers, crochet fiends and all the other wonderful creatives in our community to simply send in their best, their favourite work. While this issue is unthemed, a blank slate for you to carve your mark into, please have a read of some of the prompts below that might get the ideas flowing:
 

  • Who have you welcomed into your life this year? How have these individuals changed your outlook? Which of these stand out the most/are the most important to you?

  • Which events this year have impacted you the most powerfully? This can be a positive or negative impact, and can range in scale from very personal/individual to global events affecting multitudes.
     

  • Tell us about your non-human loved ones and why you love them - animals, plants, that childhood toy you’ve never left behind, the bike who’s carried you everywhere for years, works of art/music/literature/film/TV/games, favourite foods…this can be a very broad category!

  • Have you faced any particularly powerful challenges this year, and if so how have you navigated your way through them? Who are the people who reached out to support you, and how did their input change your approach?

  • What would your personal “anthology” look like, if you could sum it up?

  • If your life and your journey were reimagined as a video game, what would it play like, what would be the core mechanics, the style, what would it be called?

  • What disconnected works from the same artist do you feel are actually part of a larger body of work?

  • What is your favorite piece of work from an artist collective?

  • Is a collage an anthology of disparate items in a singular image?

  • What artist or writer have you followed closely throughout their career and worked hard to see every bit of their work, even their early pieces?

  • What would you like the future to look like for our community, for LGBTQIA+ creatives, and how would you like to see any current issues resolved?

 

For the safety and sanity of our editors, submissions without clear trigger warnings may be rejected outright.
