The next three themes for CQ issues and their submission call end dates are:

CQ12: Digital – July 15 (online issue only)

CQ13: Fairytales – November 25

CQ14: Speculative Fiction – March 15

We have a limit of 1000 words for written pieces. For visual art we mostly print in black and white. We do print the covers in colour, so if you have a colour piece that you think might be suitable, send it through! (*CQ12 will be online only and so everything can be in colour)

Please attach your written pieces as a word or google doc, please don’t copy paste into your submission email.

If we publish your work, each piece will get a token payment of AUD$15. Pieces selected for the front cover will be paid $30. Please note contributors should be queer/questioning.

You can send all submissions and/or questions to editors Alison and Kat at
