ode to Queer is an unabashedly queer literary and artistic journal looking for art from LGBTQIA+ artists that is experimental, fringe, and vulnerable. Our journal exists to create a queer cannon that centers and celebrates marginalized and rural voices without hiding behind diluted language or imagery to appease cis-hetero-centered viewership. We don’t wish to bottleneck the creativity of our artists, which is why we welcome all forms of visual and written art that are conscious of our guidelines. Visit odetoqueer.com/submissions for more details and to see what we’re about!

Are you building one, burning one, or have you found or forged one over troubled water? Maybe the one you’d always trusted suddenly collapsed like the ancient Inca rope bridge of San Luis Rey; maybe fate was to blame. The theme of Aji’s Fall 2020 issue is bridges. Please send graphic art, photography, poetry, short fiction, and essays on this or any other topic to be considered for publication. Once the Fall 2020 issue is filled, submissions will close until November 1, 2020. www.ajimagazine.com
