The following I am posting here from Wendell Ricketts to promote submissions to an anthology
that looks like it will be very interesting.

"I'm the editor of the successful anthology, *Everything I Have is Blue: Short Fiction by Working-Class Men about More-or-Less Gay Life* (Suspect Thoughts Press, 2005; http://everythingih aveisblue. com/ ).I'm writing to solicit contributions to an online writing project, 'Still Blue: More Writing from Working-Class Queers."*Everything I Have Is Blue* was always intended to be more than a book. It was intended to be an opportunity to use creative writing to build connections among working-class queers across race, gender, and region."Still Blue: More Writing from Working-Class Queers" is an online writing project that showcases our imaginative writing: short fiction, life writing, memoir, poems, work that doesn't fit the categories. If it illuminates our realities, our struggles, our resistance to assimilation and mental gentrification, and if it's well written, I'll consider it respectfully. (Submissions of previously published work, as long as you hold the copyright, are also welcome.) Please *do not* send erotica, as I cannot use it.Writers of any and all genders are welcome!Send your writing to me as a email attachment formatted in Word. Include a biography. Send to: editor (at) everythingihaveisbl ue dot com. If your server doesn't like that address, try me at wendell.ricketts at gmail."Still Blue" is an ongoing project and there is no deadline. Work that's selected will appear on the "Still Blue" page: http://www.everythi ngihaveisblue. com/still. html. There, you can also read The first two "Still Blue" stories, "The Werewolf" by Donal Mosher and "Day by Day" by Allen Conkle.Many thanks!Wendell Ricketts"
