Plunge is an online literary magazine publishing short stories, poetry, and non-fiction focusing on queer women within any genre, besides literary or mainstream. In addition, each issue of Plunge has its own theme that each work must address. Themes may, however, be interpreted broadly. Cross-genre stories and creative interpretations are encouraged. All works must feature queer women. A queer woman is defined as a person who is (a) not straight and (b) identifies as female.


Two notes:

1) We read submissions without knowing the author information or reading the cover letter. Please, do not put any identifying information in the work that you upload.

2) Once you upload your work you should receive an email. If you do not, check your spam folder.

These are NOT REQUIRED. However, if you have a work that doesn't fit within the size parameters or if you're uncertain whether or not your potential work will fit with the theme, you can send a query letter. These will be entirely anonymous, so your identity will not be compromised.
