What we consider

Blithe House Quarterly considers unpublished short stories by emerging and established gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered authors for publication.

BHQ showcases a diversity of style, tone, point of view and subject matter: submitted work meets with no criteria other than the piece stands up as a well-written work of literary narrative in short story form.

Stories should be between 1500 and 7500 words in length.  We ask for First Serial Rights -- all rights return to you on publication. We do not consider previously published material.
