Swelling with Pride: Queer Conception and Adoption Stories


"Dagger Editions, an imprint of Caitlin Press, is currently seeking non-fiction submissions by queer women (including trans women) of all ages, colours and backgrounds, and anyone who includes this identity in their personal history (i.e. FTM trans), for an anthology examining the diverse paths to planned queer parenthood. We are looking for honest, heartfelt, unabashedly queer non-fiction prose stories (approximately 2000 to 4000 words) that celebrate LGBTQ2 families and the myriad of ways we embark on our parenting journeys. Just as every queer person has their own coming-out story, every LGBTQ2 family has a unique conception or adoption story. Biological and societal barriers have forced us to be creative as we seek to bring children into our lives."
