Please Welcome to the Stage: A Drag Literary Anthology - Poetry (Go to Fiction)
House of Lobsters Literary

Please Welcome to the Stage…: A Drag Literary Anthology is an independent anthology of literature celebrating the art of drag. We are seeking poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art that celebrates this subversive art form that has become more mainstream and accepted in the last few years thanks to shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race and The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula.

What is drag? Drag is many things. It’s the art of playing with one’s gender. It’s performance. It’s pageantry. It’s comedy. It’s acting. It’s dancing. It’s singing. It’s lipsynching. It’s cabaret, vaudeville, and burlesque. It’s cosplay. It’s horror. It’s a cornerstone of the LGBTQIAP+ community. Drag is for anyone who wants to tap into their inner self or to become someone new entirely, whether they want to be a queen, a king, something in between, or something new entirely. Drag has no limits, and we’re excited to see literature that shows the full range.

This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
