WHO WE ARE

Rough Cut Press publishes visual art, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry up to 650 words. We release a monthly issue and seek emerging and established voices from within the international LGBTQIA community.

Specifically, we seek personal, political, precise, raw, lyrical, critical, and experimental work; the stuff only you can write. Our readers are interested in interrogating systematic inequality, sex, sexuality, gender, phobias, what it means to be an activist, and what it means to create magic.

We’re here to build a platform for a multiplicity of voices to converge, and to compensate all contributing artists from day one.

We accept submissions year-round. We don’t charge a submission fee.

Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this, you know that, yes, it’s true, I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.

Frida Kahlo

I was in the Stonewall riot. I remember when someone threw a Molotov cocktail, I thought, “My god, the revolution is here.”

Sylvia Rivera

Take a deep breath and tell us your deepest, darkest secret, so we can wipe our brow and know that we’re not alone. Write like you have a message from the king. Or don’t. Who knows, maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who doesn’t have to.

I was four or five the first time I danced. My hair was cut short and I was wearing stockings and a pink silk dress with flowers on it. I was in New Mexico.
