Every year, QSF holds a flash fiction contest to create an amazing new anthology of queer speculative fiction stories. We ask authors to do the nearly-impossible – to submit a sci fi, fantasy, paranormal or horror LGBTQ+ story that has no more than 300 words.
Our 2022 contest launches on March 1st, and closes on May 1st, but we do accept early entries. The theme for 2022 is “Clarity.” For full details and contest rules, see our 2022 page here.
We’ve now run the contest eight times, and put out books showcasing the best stories from years two, three, four, five, six and seven: Discovery, Flight, Renewal, Impact, Migraton, and Innovation.
