It can take writers years to complete a manuscript, and in the meantime, they may write shorter works in an effort to build their resumes. We have created the LCG Lounge as a space for writers to submit their short works, with the intent of developing these authors for future publication with either LCG or our parent company, Black Rose Writing.

But if we only helped writers, then our mission would be too narrow, and so the Lounge is opening its doors to visual artists, directors, musicians, actors, and any other type of artist. We are available for interviews, for posting links to videos and music, and for being a place where artistic fusion can happen. 

Rules for Submissions:

  • Anyone can submit in any genre or format (stories, novel excerpts, poems, plays, scripts, photographs, paintings, interviews, and videos)
  •  Short stories and novel excerpts keep under 15 pages and up to three poems per submission.
  • Short plays and play/script excerpts up to 20 20 pages.
  • For interview inquiries, tell us about your project and include a brief bio.
  • For artwork or visual arts, send us a link or the image itself that you wish to display in the Lounge.
  • To be considered, send your submissions to
