Nonfiction Open

We aim to publish stories not found anywhere else — stories about under-reported topics and issues that directly affect the LGBT literary community. We accept interviews for authors with new projects on the horizon. If the author in question published a book in the past month, is part of a film or TV adaptation, or recently won an award, then we certainly want to hear from them. Every week we ask an LGBTQ book lover to name the first LGBT book they ever read and we post their answers here on LambdaLiterary.org.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
