A Velvet Giant is a literary journal for work that exists outside the boundaries of genre.
Tips From the Editor
Writing that resists binary categories such as fiction/nonfiction or poetry/prose is inherently queer and inherently political. Please read our about page and previous issues to learn what we are interested in. We are especially interested in work by genderqueer & LGBTQ+ people, women, people of color, global writers, disabled writers, and survivors of DV and sexual assault.
Please do NOT send us work that is misogynistic, racist, homophobic, transphobic, or otherwise oppressive or exploitative in nature. Read our submission guidelines carefully before sending your submission.
