Chroma – A Queer Literary Journal

I have a soft spot for Chroma, not because they’ve ever published me but because their editor, Shaun Levin, is one of the nicest editors I know, and I know many. So I’m glad to share some good news with you!


Friday, 21 April, 7pm at Gay’s the Word, 66 Marchmont Street, WC1
Contributors reading include: VG Lee, Robert Seatter, Cherry Smyth, Suraya Sidhu Singh, John Dixon, and Sharon Morris

Thursday, 25 May, 6.30pm at Borders Charing Cross, 120 Charing X Road, WC2


Entries have already started coming in for Chroma’s first International Queer Writing Competition. Deadline is September 10, 2006. See our website for details about the prizes, the judges, and the rules.


We are also looking for submissions for our next issue (theme: Competition). Stories, poems and artwork that interpret the themes of rivalry, sports, war, contests are what we’re after. See our website for further suggestions. Queries? Please contact the editor, Shaun Levin, at


Chroma relies on its subscribers to survive and thrive. If you are not already a subscriber, we encourage you to join our growing list of subscribers by visiting our website and ordering your copies. Payment is through PayPal or by cheque.


We are currently seeking an enthusiastic and self-motivating person to work on our future Translation issue, due out towards the end of 2007. Your job will be primarily to source queer writers writing in languages other than English, and to help find translators. You will be provided with some contact names, and will be expected to follow up some of the contacts we have already been in touch with. You will be encouraged to make your own suggestions and contribute to the shaping of the Translation Issue. You will work closely with other members of the Chroma team – the editor, the poetry editor, and the publicity officer.

This is a voluntary and temporary post. We will reimburse travel costs, and there is a possibility of becoming more involved in the journal, funding permitting.

If you have any queries, please email the editor, Shaun Levin, at

Please send a CV and a brief letter about why the job interests you to:

Deadline: Monday 8th May
