About

139 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

Foglifter is a compendium of the most dynamic, urgent queer writing today. It's a space where queer writers celebrate, mourn, rage, and embrace. Foglifter welcomes daring and thoughtful queer work, in all forms, and we are especially interested in cross-genre, intersectional, marginal, and transgressive work. We want the pieces that challenged you as a writer, what you poured yourself into and risked the most to make. But we also want your tenderest, gentlest work, what you hold closest to your heart. Whatever you're working on now that's keeping you alive and writing, Foglifter wants to read it.

Voluntary Fees: This project accepts voluntary fees for tip jar submissions.
Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to people who identity as LGBTQ+.
