The editors at Indie Blu(e) Publishing would like to reassure all of those who have generously submitted pieces for the anthology, But You Don’t Look Sick; we understand that the lengthy pause in production has caused many to question whether or not the project is still a go. It is. We apologize for the lull, and want to stress that we’re so thankful you’ve trusted us with your writing.

Peace, Love, and Light,

Kindra M. Austin
Christine E. Ray

Call for Submissions

Indie Blu(e) Publishing will be releasing an Anthology of Lesbian Poets later in 2019. Themes of this Anthology will include identity, coming out, relationship, family, love, loss, and sensuality (rather than graphic erotica.) The deadline for submissions is June 16, 2019.  Submissions can be sent directly to and should be accompanied by a brief biography not to exceed 75 words.

The maximum number of submissions per writer is FIVE.

Writing should be submitted as a Word or PDF attachment.  If you choose to submit a poetry meme, the meme must be accompanied by the text in a Word or PDF version.

Artwork for the Anthology is also being accepted and must be able to be reproduced clearly in black and white.

Five More Days to Submit to But you don’t LOOK sick: Battles we fight with invisible illness – an Anthology — April 14, 2019

Five More Days to Submit to But you don’t LOOK sick: Battles we fight with invisible illness – an Anthology

Indie Blu(e) Publishing is still accepting submissions for an anthology about the lived experience of chronic, invisible physical illness. If you have been diagnosed with such an illness (for example: lupus, MS, fibromyalgia, chronic Lyme disease, migraine headache, etc.) or are a caretaker for someone who has, share your truth with us. We believe that creative expression can enlighten, connect, support, and heal.

Writers and artists can submit up to three pieces of creative work (poetry, prose, essay, and/or original Artwork.)  Pieces of writing should be limited in length (under 1,000 words.)

Using a pen name or publishing anonymously is acceptable.  You will be asked to provide a brief biography (75 words or less) to be included in the anthology.

You will be notified if your work is accepted. Please do not consider non- acceptance as any diminishment of your experience, but as with any publishing venture, we must try to fit the individual pieces together into a strong whole.

Submission of previously published pieces is acceptable if you still own the rights to your work.

Artwork can be submitted in black and white OR color, but all artwork should be black and white compatible.

All submissions should be uploaded to our Submittable page by midnight, Friday, April 19, 2019.
