Chelsea Station, a magazine devoted to gay literature, is publishing a special issue devoted to queer trans men and trans masculine people.
The issue will publish original and unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essays, memoir, humor, narrative travelogue, interviews, and reviews (books, theater, television, and film) relating to queer trans masculine literature and queer trans men. “Queer” is a term that contributors can self-define, and may include, but is not limited to, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, and other sexual identities. “Trans masculine” is a term that encompasses people assigned “female” at birth who have moved away from that gender marker, and includes, but is not limited to, trans masculine nonbinary people, genderqueer people, and agender people.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Manuscripts should be emailed as a Word attachment.

Please also include a brief bio of 100 words at the end of your submission. Please do not send more than one prose work or more than four poems for consideration. The online magazine will also feature art and photos and contributors can query by sending samples or links to their portfolio.
