Submissions are open for an issue of Speculative City with writer LP Kindred as guest editor.

For this issue, we invite writers who specifically identify as queer AND BIPOC. We seek provocative fiction, poetry, and essays that center on queer life, as seen through a BIPOC lens, in a speculative city—cities are vital spaces of community that act as a welcome ground and place of exploration.

Writers published will be paid $20-$55 according to the category and length of their submission. We do not accept submissions exceeding 5500 words.

- All submissions should be the original, unpublished work of the submitter.
- We will accept simultaneous submissions, but please inform us if the submission has been accepted by another publication.
