Queers Destroy Science Fiction | LIGHTSPEED

I just found out about the Queers Destroy Science Fiction for LIGHTSPEED magazine, but I’m totally going to do it. I have about 28 days to write, edit, and submit a story. I learned about this from the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy by WIRED podcast in episode 133, which covers this process and more. Check it out!

If you are interested in submitting your own science fiction story, here are the rules. You have until February 15, 2015. There are two categories, and yes, the author MUST be queer, but the content need not be. AND, it must be science fiction, not fantasy, and not erotica.

  • original short stories (1500-7500 words) or
  • flash fiction  (<1500 words)
