Queeries would love to have your voice as a residential writer. 

Becoming a residential writer is a volunteer position, but the schedule is controlled by the author and isn’t rigorous and is a deeply enriching experience. If you’ve ever felt let down by other publications because of their ineptitude to handle LGBTQIA+ centered content.

In return for committing to a residential stay with our blog, you’ll:

  • be given a consistent platform to share your work that will be broadcasted through all of our social media and mailing list
  • guaranteed publication in our digital and printed quarterly zine
  • advertisement of your achievements and projects beyond Queeries on our social media
  • editorial critique and support from the Editor

 To apply you must be:

  • LGBTQIA+ identified in any way. You do not need to “prove” this but please do not consider us if you aren’t LGBTQIA+
  • An artist or writer in any capacity – description left purposefully vague as many projects and work can be considered art.
  • At least 18 years old.
  • Able to commit to a submission to our quarterly seasonal zine
  • Able to commit to your own self made posting schedule which is decided by the artist every season.
  • Able to use a WordPress formatted website and self edit and upload submissions. However, If you have challenges using WordPress or are unfamiliar, please let us know in the questions/comments section your submission. We will still consider you.
