MCB Quarterly Submission Guidelines
At this time, Mischief Corner Books is an invitation only publisher with one exception. We are currently accepting submissions for our new LGBTQ magazine, the MCB Quarterly. What is the MCB Quarterly? Glad you asked.
The MCB Quarterly: Giving Voice to LGBTQ Fiction
a quarterly online magazine
We want your LGBTQ short stories 10,000 words and under. This is truly a LGBTQ call. We want well written, solid fiction short stories featuring all kinds of LGBTQ characters to share with readers as a quarterly eMagazine. The stories will be released quarterly as a bundle starting next year. So get your typing fingers ready.
Got a short story about a gay cop in the SF police force? Great.
A lesbian attorney fighting a corrupt corporation? Fabulous.
A transwoman moving to a new, small town that has secrets? We want her.
No sex? That's all right. Don't get us wrong. We won't turn away stories with hot and heavy content, but the emphasis is on the fiction. All sub-genres are welcome as well - please send your science fiction, your fantasy, your horror, your steampunk, and so on. As long as the main character(s) is LGBTQ, we want a crack at it.
No HEA/HFN? That's okay, too. We all appreciate a 'Happily Ever After' as much as the next reader but it isn't a necessity. A good fiction story with a solid LBGTQ MC is what we want.
Hi all! We have a special reading today with an excerpt from a short story by the talented J. Scott Coatsworth. While the story's complete, it won't be available until March of 2015. Why? Because "Avalon" will be included in the first issue of the MCB Quarterly. Take a look below for details and submission specifics for those of you with LBGT fiction short stories you may be trying to place :)
For full submission guidelines and instructions, please see the Submissions page. For the rest of J. Scott Coatsworth's "Avalon," stay tuned for the premier edition of the MCB Quarterly coming March 2015!
