Are you a queer writer? Can you write a good script, poem or story that you would love to see published? Independent publishers, Little Episodes, would like to hear from you. Their latest mission, Queer Episodes, will be an anthology of queer-themed writing.

 

Queer Episodes is a project that celebrates LGBT identity and what it means. The book will give new writers their own podium from which to make their voices and feelings heard.

 

Little Episodes is an arts production company and are a non-profit organisation that cover a wide variety of artists, from musicians to performers. Well-known author Melvin Burgess (Junk) to Sadie Frost (actress) and Adam Ant (musician) have all been involved with the organisation and your writing could appear next to similar names.

 

Having had plays commissioned, theatre performances, all mixed with poetry and music Little Episodes helps to raise awareness on issues from depression to drug addiction, and fighting for LGBT equality.

 

Lucie Barat (the organisation's founder) says:"Queer Episodes will be an anthology of poetry and short stories/pieces of writing celebrating identity and also providing empathy and encouragement for those who are struggling with their sexuality…[And once published] books will be available via the Little Episodes site and through all good book stores. We're aiming for mainstream distribution. We're supported by Little Brown Book Group, the biggest publisher in Europe."

 

"Little Episodes leads with the by-line Arts Against Apathy. We believe nothing will change unless everyone finds their voice, in whatever guise, to fight the wrongs within our society." So make your voice heard and get writing."

 

The Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity that helps young, homeless LGBT people, will receive a percentage of the sales from the book. The book launch will include a play, poetry performances and bands at Madame JoJo's (London) on 11 April 2013.
