Poetry with Pride Magazine – Open Submissions – closing 6 July

Belfast Pride is now seeking submissions for 2023’s Poetry with Pride magazine – a digital publication celebrating queer poetry in Belfast. We’re especially eager to publish poetry by members of the LGBT+ community in Belfast but we also welcome submissions from LGBT+ writers across the island of Ireland and further afield.

The magazine will be launched at this year’s Poetry with Pride event at The MAC on Wednesday 26th July, and will be available on a new section of the Belfast Pride website alongside all back issues.

This opportunity is currently unpaid, but submissions are free and simultaneous submissions are welcome. We are open to previously published material (provided ownership of the work remains with the author), but priority will be given to pieces which have not been previously published.

Submissions guidelines:

Poems to be no longer than 30 lines, with a maximum of three poems per submission.

Deadline for submissions: 6th July 2023.

Please email your work as a Word doc or pdf attachment to toby.buckley@belfastpride.com.

We look forward to reading your work.
