You have opinions about what’s going on in the news and in your community and we’re interested in what you have to say.  We want to be a platform for your queer lens on your world.

Send us your short stories, poetry, satire, comics, illustrations, and photo essays. Fiction, nonfiction, that poem you wrote for the woman you could hardly see there were so many stars in your eyes, but you still never sent it? Fill our inboxes with them. Classic, satirical, single panel illustrations, photography based travelogues of queers with disabilities - we want it all. 

We are an explicitly queer website, and we have a preference for work created by queer writers and artists. 

FOR OUR THIRD HARDCOVER PRINT EDITION, WE’RE SEEKING STORIES ABOUT WHAT HOME MEANS TO YOU.

How do you make your home in these volatile times? How do you remember your homes of the past?Where or who makes you feel safe and stable? Home can be a person, a memory, or a place. It can feel stable or precarious. Are globalization, climate change, and gentrification pushing you out of your LGBTQ spaces, leaving you wanting for home? Has strife helped you find home in your friends and community? We want to read your stories. 

We are accepting poetry, fiction and non-fiction pieces up to 2500 words, single panel illustrations and comics, photography and photo essays. 

Deadline for submissions is March 5th.

We pay all of our contributors, and payment for contribution to Argot’s Print Edition is 50% more than standard Argot contributions, e.g. a $100 essay is $150, a $30 poem is $45, etc. 

We’re interested in writing and visual art that spans the worlds of queer culture, marginalized communities, politics and culture.  

Are you an engineer struggling to succeed in a sexist environment? A trans cosplayer who’s found your perfect nerd community? A teacher with lupus who constantly questions how much to divulge about your disability? We’re interested in the margins, in questions of alienation and community building, but it doesn’t stop there. Tell us about your activism, your healing moments, your isolation and danger.
