Submission Guidelines

Anything That Moves welcomes unsolicited manuscripts, photographs, and illustrations. We are particularly interested in work by bi/pan/or-similarly-sexuals, people of color, transgender- or transsexual-identified, those who are differently abled, and those challenged by AIDS or HIV, as well as material not previously published and/or from new or unpublished writers.


ATM accepts submissions such as: fiction; non-fiction commentary and feature articles; news reports on the bisexual community or individuals; and literary, film, theater, and music reviews.

Features & Interviews: ATM publishes features relating to any angle of bisexual life -- cultural, lifestyle, spiritual, sexual, health, relationship, political... you name it. . Maximum word count: 2500 words

Fiction: Any content is up for consideration and need not address bisexuality specifically; however, bisexual content is given priority. Maximum word count: 2500 words.

Non-fiction Commentary: ATM provides space for writers to explore contemporary issues related to bisexuality that are editorial in nature -- personal opinions and viewpoints. Maximum word count: 2000 words.

Reviews: ATM publishes reviews of books, film, music, exhibits, theater, and anything else related to bisexual artists, topics, and/or themes as well as subjects of interest to bisexuals. Black & white photos or stats of reviewed book jackets, or black & white theatrical/portfolio promotional photos to accompany reviews, are greatly appreciated. Maximum word count: 500 words.

Photographers and Illustrators:

ATM is extremely interested in receiving submissions of photographs (single photos as well as photo essays), illustrations, comics, cartoons and other artwork. Photographs of three-dimensional artwork will be considered. Artists who have not yet been published are especially encouraged to submit. ATM is also interested in artists who will work on assignment with the art director to illustrate articles as needed.

Erotic and/or nude artwork will be considered. All photos containing models or subjects with identifiable and/or copyrighted likenesses must be accompanied by a signed model release form and age statement.

Submitting Hard Copies: Mail clean photocopies or prints to the attention of Art. Do not submit originals, as ATM cannot be responsible for them. The artist's name, address, and phone number must be attached to the back of each submission. Include a SASE if you want work returned if not accepted.

Submitting Digital Copies (Scans): Email digital files (72dpi and under 256k; jpeg format preferred) directly to the art director. Or post them on the web and email the URL to the art director at Or mail files on floppy or zip disk to the attention of Art; be aware that ATM cannot return disks to you.
