After the success and popularity of Febulous February 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 FioxiRose, writer, performance poet and lesbian, living in Kent, is reaching out again to friends, colleagues and associates who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex and those of you questioning your sexual orientation and/or their gender identity and your family members. The invitation to you all is to submit a short piece of your own writing as a celebration during LGBT History month. The pieces, a mix of prose and poetry, may have specific LGBT content whilst others simply come from that perspective.
FioxiRose continues to dedicate this anthology to her dear friend and former partner Sheila, who sadly died very suddenly on 13 February 2015. Sheila championed Febulous February, contributed extracts of her keen writing and did a great PR job on it.
The theme this year: Protest and revolution (500 words max.)
FioxiRose has agreed to post a piece here every day during LGBT History month, culminating in the creation of Febulous February (2018), an anthology which celebrates us in all our beautiful queerness, as well as embeds a landmark in our LGBT History.
Submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org between 15 January – 10 February 2018 to enable planning of the month. Feedback on submissions within this site are welcome and encouraged.
