TransFocus is looking for submissions from writers, poets, and artists within the trans community for a special project. We are excited to announce that we will be publishing an anthology of work for and by trans folks with the intent of donating the proceeds to two fantastic trans charities (Trans Lifeline and Mermaids)!
TransFocus will be its own publisher for this venture, and all proceeds from book sales will go towards the good work our two chosen charities do. If you want to read more about the good work they do, check out the Trans Lifeline page here and the Mermaids page here.
We are looking for original poetry, non-fiction, and artwork and focusing on the trans experience. We want to know about you. Artwork can be, but is not limited to, comics, illustrations, paintings, sketches, drawings, design, really anything artistic that you create. Tell us about your struggles, your achievements, interests, and what makes you tick. There is no wrong way to write your piece; all walks of life are welcome, so long as you are of the trans experience. You need not have a formula, we only ask that your work is about you.
COVER DESIGN SUBJECT TO CHANGE*
Most of all, this is for YOU! Our final product will be produced in ebook formats, as well as paperback and limited edition hardcover. Our Kickstarter has completed, and we will be opening up general sales once our initial backers have received their copies.
This will not only be a cathartic way to express ourselves, but also a means of supporting our own when times are toughest. We feel compiling and furthering the voices of trans folks is of the utmost importance, and truly cannot wait to show you what we’ve been working on.
Submissions are officially open as of now and will be closed at a later date, depending on how fast we get submissions/how many we receive.
We cannot wait to see what you have to offer!
