Submissions are OPEN for our T4T (Trans4Trans) issue until February 15th, 2021. Click here to submit.

Delicate Friend is an adult (18+) space for sexual or intimate art or literature you enjoyed creating. Art is work, so enjoyment does not exclude difficulty. Difficulty can be exciting! At the end of the day, we want this journal to be a fun experience for us and our readers.

We are looking for poetry, prose, visual art, music, videos, game descriptions, fake movie reviews, real movie reviews, and more. One of us had an idea to create a section for crossword puzzles and mazes, and though we decided against it, those would still be cool. Use the “hybrid” and/or “other” options on the Google form if you have something unlisted you think we’d like.

We are not looking for graphic descriptions of trauma, abuse, or non-consensual acts.

We request that you limit the length of your submissions to the following:

  • Poetry: Up to five poems
  • Prose: Up to 2000 words (total, not per piece)
  • Visual art: Up to five pieces
  • Video and audio: Around three minutes

We accept simultaneous submissions. We also accept previously published work. Please include any prior publications in which your submission has appeared within your submission document. 

We aim to respond to submissions within two weeks after the closure of the submission period. If you receive a rejection, please wait until the next submission period to contact us again. If you are accepted, we request you wait to submit again until the issue following yours is out  – we want to make room (space, if you will) for new voices. 

Here’s another link to our submission form, just in case you missed it.
