Poems and Short Stories

Poems and short stories reveal our heart


Poetry - exuberant language of the heart

In poetry and short stories, we share our hearts, our truest selves and our sharing moves the world. You've heard the phrase, heart of a warrior-soul of a poet? That may or may not describe you. In any case, share a bit of yourself with us and we'll all be better for the sharing.

The 101 Community is the place to post your writing online, to reach out to your fellow GLBTs because we're all on this journey together. We're a G-rated family-friendly site reaching 45,000+ readers in 180 countries around the world every month.

As Christians, we seek to inspire and encourage our community. Thanks for not advocating false teaching in your poetry and short stories. We also welcome you to submit your uplifting and inspiring gay fiction. We do not publish sex scenes or profanity. If your creative gay fiction is too long to fit in the form below, please send email it to us using the Contact Us form.

Please Note:

This supersedes the Submission Guidelines you'll be asked to check when you submit your words and/or photos.

We DO NOT claim exclusive rights to poetry, short stories or pictures you submit to us.

Your literary work is your property. You are ONLY granting us the right to freely display on this website what you send us.

We do not own your work - you own it. Therefore you retain the right to use what you submit for publication on Gay Christian 101 in other venues too, in any way you choose.
