Gertrude is a queer literary and arts journal accepting submissions from new and established writers and artists. We believe all literature written by LGBTQ people is LGBTQ literature, subject matter need to be specifically themed. We welcome anyone identifying as LGBTQA to submit. We do not accept previously published work. 

Please note that we do not publish novels. We read chapbook manuscripts ONLY through our annual competition.

The journal is on-line only. We accept fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and all forms of art for the journal. Please contact for book review and interview pitches.
