KFB publishes what delights in poetry several times a year.

wQr What Queer Reading, a Queer/BIPOC imprint of KFB edited by Fan Wu, is welcoming submissions:

wQr, What Queer Reading, with myself acting as editor and Kirby as publisher. We’re devoted to publishing queer poets of colour, and we’re looking for work in which queerness is expressed alongside but also beyond identity: in the shifting of selfhood into cosmic matter; in the cyborg animality of our species being; in the sharp turns of deviant syntaxes and semantics. We seek work that interrogates the systems upholding oppression & normativity; that engages with the infinite variety of language & world; that expresses the mutability of things & the complexities of living contradictions. We hope to release one or two chapbooks in 2022 of inventive, fresh, fierce voices that revel in all the possibilities of queerness.

If you are interested in publishing through the What Queer Reading imprint, please drop me a line at fanwu2@gmail.com.
