We're proud to announce the launch of Chroma's Issue 4. We're having a big launch party and we hope you'll be able to join us. And seeing as it's the Cinema issue, we're giving away free Butterkist, thanks to Cadbury Schweppes. The party starts at 5pm on Sunday, April 9 at The Langley in Covent Garden (5 Langley Street): there'll be some free booze, readings from contributors, and great music.
We'll also be appearing at the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival alongside Jake Arnott's The Long Firm.
Issue 4 has more stories and poems than previous issues, stunning artwork, and a gorgeous cover by the wonderful Del LaGrace Volcano (check out our website for all the info http://www.chromajournal.co.uk/).
We're also launching our first International Queer Writing Competition. We're proud to have Mark Doty judge the poetry category, and Ali Smith and Michael Arditti judge the short story category. There are big cash prizes for the three winning stories in each category (and publication in Chroma). Please see our website for all the rules: http://www.chromajournal.co.uk/
The winning UK entries will appear at the proudWORDS Festival in October 2006.
We're also looking for submissions for our next two issue: Competition and Island. You can see more details and suggestions for stories and poems on the website.
