Changelings Anthology: Call for Submissions

Changelings: An Autistic Trans Anthology

Edited by Ryan Vale & Ocean

Nothing about us without us!

We are seeking submissions for an independently published anthology, centred around autistic trans characters by authors who share these identities.

A young adult anthology of stories about trans autistic characters by trans autistic authors. These last few years have been difficult for the transgender community.
