SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED

Butter Press centers queer, non-binary and transgender voices. We seek to publish emerging and established artists alike. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, however we ask that we are notified if a piece is accepted elsewhere. We also accept work that has been previously published. 

We currently accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction submissions. All work should be sent by email. Please include a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file with an author bio in the body of the email. We encourage pronouns and portfolio/social media links be included in the bio.
