The next three themes for CQ issues and their submission call end dates are:

CQ16: Growth – August 31 2020
CQ17: Magic – November 30 2020
CQ18: Music – March 31 2021

We have a limit of 1000 words for written pieces. For visual art we mostly print in black and white. We do print the covers in colour, so if you have a colour piece that you think might be suitable, send it through!

Please attach your written pieces as a word or google doc, please don’t copy paste into your submission email. Before you submit, have a look at the work we publish so you can get an idea if your work is a good fit.

If we publish your work, each piece will get a token payment of AUD$15. Pieces selected for the front cover will be paid $30. PleaseĀ note contributors should be queer/questioning.

You can send all submissions and/or questions to editors Alison and Kat at If your work contains anything that may need a content warning, please advise in your email.
