Call For Submissions: Coming Out of the Closet Again

Yes, I've been working on this for a while, but I finally have an definite date for it. So, here's the final call.



Coming Out of the Closet Again: Queer Women on Loving Men
(Suspect Thoughts Press, due out in 2008)

Editor: Cheryl Burke

Email Submission to:

Deadline: October 15, 2007. But please let me know ASAP if you're interested in submitting and what you would like to write about.

Payment: $25, plus two copies of the book

I’m interested in women with personal stories of coming out again and women who identify as lesbian/queer-identified bisexuals.

- Did you start dating a man after you were out as a lesbian?
- Are you a lesbian with a boyfriend?
- Are you a woman in a relationship with a man who still identifies as queer? - Are you both bi and dyke?
- How do you maintain a queer identity while you are being perceived as straight?
- How have those around you reacted to your coming out again?

Submit well-written personal essays/nonfiction, 5-12 double spaced pages. Some prose poetry may also be considered. I cannot accept erotica for this project. Please include a brief bio, and your contact information with your submission.

If you would like to discuss essay ideas/topics or if you have any questions, please contact me at
