Field of Lenses is a space for writers to celebrate and engage with the works and figures of cinema and TV that have shaped them and their identity. While all writers are welcome to submit, we will focus on work by femme, queer, and trans writers of color. We want writers to explore representation and marginalization in the world of film.

Poets can send up to five poems. Prose and non-fiction writers can submit up to two pieces, either a short story or an essay, of up to 3,000 words. All writers should include a brief statement (no more than 200 words) on the relationship between their work and their cinematic influences.

Please follow all general Winter Tangerine submission guidelines. Poems should be submitted in one file. Identifying information (full name, email, phone number, etc) should not appear anywhere on the file upload to Submittable or the title of the submission. There is an honorarium for each profiled writer. Submissions will be open year round for monthly publication.
