Mary, a literary magazine published quarterly, is currently seeking submissions for both our print and web publications. Submissions are welcomed in prose, poetry, or essay format. Our mission is to showcase Queer/Gay writings of artistic merit. Submissions should not be any longer than 5,000 words, and can be submitted electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org . Writers whose work is accepted will be awarded a small honorarium.
Mary is seeking to capture and examine queer moments; to offer a surfeit of gay writings of artistic value and give them the showcase they deserve. Mary’s goal is to highlight writings that strive to reveal a perfect homosexual moment without any rationalization other than to skillfully reflect: this is the gay world or this is the gay world as we imagine it to be.
In Mary there might be political and social commentary, and maybe an indoctrinating manifesto or two; but none of these things will come before a beautiful phrase or a lyrical stanza that lay bare the lives of the seemingly disparate communities of queers, sissies, activists, “straight-acting”/appearing men who have sex with men, daddies, punks, tops, cubs, pigs, bangee queens, twinks, romantics and head cases. Mary is dedicated to gay writing that is not simply art for art’s sake, but art as a demonstration of life.
