ERWA Themed Anthology: Multi-partner erotica

Want to see your work in print, branded with the famous ERWA name?

Last year, we released our first anthology, Unearthly Delights: Tales of Paranormal Desire, which hit Amazon’s top 10 Anthologies list in its first week.

The anthology for which we are currently inviting submissions is “Twisted Sheets”, which is a collection of stories specificially about multi-partner erotica”. The submission deadline for this theme is now:

1st June 2018.

The ERWA anthologies are published by Excessica, after professional editing and cover design. Contributors split royalties. We expect that each anthology will be 50-60,000 words and will include six to ten stories. Stories will be selected by the Storytime editing staff.

All contributions should be between 4,000 and 10,000 words. Stories can feature any genders, orientations or pairings and any sort of sexual activity that satisfies the Storytime rules and the anthology theme. We will also accept one single-author series of 3-5 flashers and 1-3 quickies that are thematically linked—at least 5 pieces, a minimum of 2000 words in total.

You may submit reprints if you own all rights, but we would rather see new stories.

HOW TO GET YOUR WORK CONSIDERED

All authors must be members of the Storytime critique group. Storytime is the ERWA email community through which we critique one another’s work. We’re welcoming new and enthusiastic members each month.

To sign up for Storytime, go here (and scroll to the bottom of the page): https://www.erotica-readers.com/erwa-email-discussion-list/

We strongly advise that you do not select the digest option for this group, which is extremely busy. Once you’ve subscribed, you will start seeing stories and critiques from the following email address: erastorytime@erwa.simplelists.com

To post work intended for the anthology, use this convention for the subject line:

MULTIPARTNER ANTHO STORY: [your title]. For example:

MULTIPARTNER ANTHO STORY: Going Camping

Authors of anthology stories must contribute critiques of other authors’ work. Reciprocal critiques are an incredibly important part of this effort, and reflect our general ethos of mutual cooperation and support. Would-be participants should provide the level of critique that they would hope to receive.

Once you’ve posted your first effort, you can repost a second time to get further feedback on any improvements you’ve made from your first round of critiques.

For a great tutorial on doing critiques, see Ian Smith’s article on the ERWA blog:
https://www.erotica-readers.com/blog/2016/06/11/feedback-nits-crits-and-reviews/

HOW TO MAKE FINAL SUBMISSIONS

erwa.submissions@lisabetsarai.com

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR IN ‘TWISTED SHEETS: MULTIPARTNER ANTHOLOGY’

Woody Allen famously said: “Sex between two people is a beautiful thing—between five, it’s fantastic.”

In that same spirit of saucy adult fun, we’re looking for erotic short stories with a thematic focus on sex that involves more than the traditional two participants. Swapping, swinging, groups, ménages, polyamorous relationships or the kinky thrills at the end of a party: however you want to tackle this, we want to see your take! This theme offers lots of opportunities for creativity. Romantic or edgy, historical or futuristic, humorous or dead serious—as long as you’ve got more than two characters getting it on, we want to see your ideas.

It goes without saying that we’re looking for stories that are of a high literary standard, with a strong narrative structure, compelling characters and exciting multi-partnered erotic content. The final collection will be a showcase of erotic talent that explores the delicious dynamics of threesomes, foursomes or more-somes.

Deadline: June 1, 2018

Banquet Erotica

Banquet is a printed series of erotic short stories and illustration. Volume I will be released in Fall 2018.

The work is highly erotic yet dignified and intelligent in spirit. From the tender to the aggressive, the traditional to the perverse, its narratives cover a broad range of tastes. We treat writing as an art that can be as transcendent as the acts it describes. 

Banquet is now commissioning writers and fine artists to create original works of an erotic nature. You may send your submission, short story or illustration to Lisa Marie at info@banqueterotica.com. Please submit your work by April 30th to be considered for our inaugural publication.

Stories should not exceed 2,500 words. All work must be original and previously unpublished in print. Please include your contact information and a pen name if preferred.

Your work and privacy are fully protected. We look forward to playing with you.

Ongoing CFS for Speculative Erotic Flash Fiction

Circlet Press is seeking sexy speculative fiction of the short short (micro) variety. What is speculative fiction? Examples of it include: science fiction, fantasy, utopias, dystopian, superhero, experimental, and occasionally supernatural though we prefer to keep our horror microfictions to the month of October.

We are looking for short literary erotic works to be featured on our website. We encourage diversity in our fiction. All gender pairings and orientations are welcome so long as everything is clearly consensual. Erotic microfictions should be between 250-1000 words and original works that are not available elsewhere. Please no fan fiction. Authors retain all rights and payment is $5 per story.

Multiple submissions are okay. Send submissions to circlet.microfiction@gmail.com either in the body of the email or as a Word doc. Please include a short bio.

Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 5

To be published by Cleis Press in December 2019
Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

Make sure to read and follow the guidelines in full. Guidelines may be updated over the course of the open submission period. The call for submissions section of bweoftheyear.com will always contain the most up-to-date version of these guidelines. For occasional BWE submission tips, follow @BWEoftheyear on Twitter and bestwomenserotica on Instagram.

This anthology is open to women, gender nonconforming, genderqueer and nonbinary authors only; if you do not fall into any of these categories, please do not submit to this anthology.

As in prior volumes, I want your best, boldest, hottest, most creative and diverse 2,000-4,500 word erotica stories. All stories must have a clear beginning, middle and end, with engaging characters and plotlines. Stories featuring creative plotlines have the best chances of being accepted. Unless the storytelling is exceptional, in most cases, plotlines and scenarios featured in prior Best Women’s Erotica of the Year volumes will not be included in this volume. Please note that final decisions will be made by September 30, 2019; if you cannot wait until then to hear back about your story, do not submit to this anthology.

Protagonists will range from single to coupled, of varying sexual orientations, races, ages (all characters must be 18+ for the entirety of the story), religions, fetishes, jobs, interests, locations and life experiences. First, second and third person narratives are all welcome.

The theme of this anthology is “Outrageous” and all published stories will touch on this theme (most without explicitly using the word “outrageous” in the story). I strongly encourage you to take that theme and run with it, keeping in mind that what’s “outrageous” to one character will be humdrum to another. The final book will feature a variety of characters exploring their own personal versions of outrageousness. While stories of sexual adventure and excess are extremely welcome, I’m also looking for stories that surprise the reader regarding the idea of outrageousness. Stories that don’t connect to the theme of outrageousness in some way will be rejected.

For stories featuring characters from marginalized groups, ownvoices stories are strongly preferred; if yours is an ownvoices story, you are welcome to mention that in your cover letter. This information will be kept confidential. If you’re not familiar with the term, see the creator’s definition of ownvoices here.

Stories in the final book will range from humorous and playful to intense and soulful to down and dirty, and will reflect a similar sexual, racial and age diversity as the stories in Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volumes 1, 2, 3 and 4. Story submissions must be unpublished (never published, in whole or in part, anywhere, online or offline). No scat or incest, although age play will be considered as long as it’s clear in the context of the story that the characters are engaging in roleplay. No poetry will be considered.

In a nutshell: I want stories that blow my mind, that grab my attention and don’t let go, that say something new and exciting about sex and sexuality, that will appeal to longtime erotica readers and new readers of the genre. Make every word count. As you edit your story before submitting it, I encourage you to make sure each sentence serves a purpose and is advancing the story you’re telling.

I want stories that will make readers stop everything they’re doing and eagerly read every last word to find out what happens to your characters. I gravitate toward unique, creative, memorable characters, settings and scenarios. I will consider sci fi, fantasy, paranormal and historical stories, although contemporary stories will comprise the majority of the book. For an idea of the types of stories I like, see Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, 2 and 3. If you submitted a story to Volume 1, 2, 3 or 4 that was rejected, you may resubmit it, but in most cases, a new story stands a far better chance of acceptance.

In the interest of publishing the largest number of authors possible, writers whose work appears in Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, 2, 3 or 4 edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel will NOT be considered for this volume, but contributors to previous Best Women’s Erotica collections by prior editors are welcome to submit work.

How to submit: Submit only 2,000-4,500 original, unpublished stories that are not being considered elsewhere. Word count applies to the text of your story, excluding story title and author name. Maximum two submissions per author. Stories CANNOT be under consideration elsewhere at any point prior to the book’s publication date in December 2018. I want only original work that has never been published online, in print or in any format at all, including personal or other types of blogs. All characters must be 18 or over for the entirety of the story. U.S. grammar (spelling, double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) required.

Submit to bweoftheyear@gmail.com with “BWE 5 Submission: Story Title” in the subject line by attaching a Word .doc or .docx file titled BWE 5 Story Title Last Name, using Times New Roman Black font. At the top of the first page, include legal name, pseudonym (if applicable), mailing address, phone (only to be used for urgent communication about your story) AND 50 word-or-under third person professional biography to be published in the book. Make sure you use an email address that you check on a regular basis (at least once a week). If you include a URL in your bio, it should be included in the first sentence in this format:

Rachel Kramer Bussel (rachelkramerbussel.com) writes fiction and non-fiction.

All stories must have a title and byline (author name) included with the submission (no untitled stories) at the top of the first page. Indent half an inch at the start of each paragraph. Use double spacing for the entire file; DO NOT add extra lines between paragraphs or use any other irregular spacing. Title your document BWE 5 Story Title Last Name (“Last Name” must be the last name of the name you want published). For instance, if Elaine Smith, writing as Jane Doe, is submitting a story titled “Lovers,” the file would be titled “BWE 5 Lovers Doe.” If you cannot use Word, submit as both an RTF AND include the full submission in the body of an email, including title, story text, bio, name and pseudonym (if applicable), mailing address and phone number. DO NOT SUBMIT MULTIPLE VERSIONS OF THE SAME STORY AS ONLY THE FIRST VERSION WILL BE CONSIDERED. SUBMIT YOUR STORY WITH THE TITLE, AUTHOR NAME AND WORDING YOU WOULD WANT PUBLISHED IF THE STORY IS ACCEPTED. MAKE SURE TO THOROUGHLY PROOFREAD YOUR STORY BEFORE SUBMITTING IT. Your submission should be a throughly proofread, typo free document that you want to see published using the byline and biography you’ve provided. Only stories that are between 2,000-4,500 words and submitted by August 1, 2018, 11:59 pm EST will be considered. Please do not ask about exceptions to the word count or deadline as they will not be granted.

I will confirm that I have received your submission within 72 hours. I will respond with an acceptance or rejection to all submissions by September 30, 2019 at the latest. If you have not heard back from me by October 1, 2019, feel free to follow up at that time.

“Shifting rape culture one sexy story at a time.”

Kintsugi – Powerful Stories of Healing Trauma

Call Reopened: Kintsugi – Powerful Stories of Healing Trauma

We’ve reopened this call in hopes of getting more stories for a print book as well as stories of how trauma has affected relationships, confidence, and body image. This is SinCyr’s first nonfiction open call! For this collection, we’ve decided to call it Kintsugi, named after the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold or other fine materials. The idea is to take something shattered or cracked and turn it into a piece even more beautiful than before.

What we’re looking for:

Personal stories about healing trauma. For some of you, writing this piece may be your first step to healing. For others, you may have come through great amounts of abuse and found your agency and joy. These stories will vary because abuse varies. How it affects us varies. Because the company is focused on shifting rape culture, body shaming, toxic masculinity and so forth, the stories should fit somewhere into these categories.

Were you sexually abused? Body shamed? Harassed and bullied for your sexuality or gender? The victim of abused power? Did the abuse cause difficulty in maintaining healthy relationships? How has the abuse affected you sexually and how have you healed? Found your joy? Or are you taking that first step to healing right now by writing for this collection?

Transformation is beautiful. Sharing your story is powerful.

Here are some vital details to remember when writing for and submitting to this collection:

  • These stories should focus on healing from abuse. Sharing abuse is necessary to illustrate what you’ve overcome, but we’d like the focus to be on the healing and not the trauma itself. If this is your first step to healing, you might share how you came to accept what happened or what you plan to do to move forward now that you’ve shared and started down the path of healing.
  • For liability reasons, please don’t call out specific people for their abuse. Keep it vaguer. We can’t print anything that calls out someone in too much detail. This includes mental health, as it’s not ethical to print other’s mental illness details. There is also the option of pen names or Jane Doe One, John Doe Five, etc…
  • Polished stories only. Make sure your story is clean. Follow the submission guidelines for formatting.

Submission Guidelines:

  • 12pt font, Times New Roman
  • Double Spaced, no extra line between paragraphs
  • Do not hit the “tab” key to indent paragraphs. Use Word’s margins/ruler to indent.
  • Send in Word doc or rtf. Word is preferred.

Word count: 1000-5000 words
One story submission per person.
Submission Deadline: NEW DEADLINE April 30, 2018

Best Bondage Erotica of the Year, Volume 1

Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
To be published by Cleis Press in late 2019
Deadline: July 1, 2018

For Best Bondage Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, Rachel Kramer Bussel is looking for your hottest, most creative unpublished 2,000-4,000 word bondage erotica stories (no poetry). This anthology will include characters of different races, ages, backgrounds and bondage experience levels, plus a wide range of motivations, techniques, implements, and scenarios engaging in a bondage or restraint scenario at some point in the story. I want characters ranging from newbies to seasoned bondage players and everything in between. I want first person, second person and third person stories. I want bondage in bedrooms, at play parties, at offices, in public, in secret. Bondage should be a central focus of the erotic element of the story but the plot does not have to hinge on bondage. For an idea of the types of stories I prefer, see Best Bondage Erotica 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. While reading them is not required for submission to this anthology, I generally will not repeat highly specific bondage implements that appeared in any of those volumes. Stories that do not contain any form of bondage or restraint will not be considered.

The final book will include stories focused on both the physical and mental aspects of bondage. Bondage plus other elements of BDSM or sexual activity is welcome (spanking, tickling, exhibitionism, voyeurism, intercourse, oral sex, teasing, etc.). The more creative the bondage, the better, but any type of bondage will work as long as the story is arousing and draws me in from the first word and keeps me riveted. The main reason I reject stories for a themed anthology is that tales are too similar to each other, so avoid clichéd plotlines and dialogue. Authors I’ve never published before are especially encouraged to submit to this anthology. Characters of all genders/sexual orientations welcome. No poetry. All characters must be over 18 for the entirety of the story. No incest or bestiality. Note that I won’t be able to give final answers to submissions until August 1, 2019. If you need a response sooner, please do not submit to this anthology.

All stories should have a compelling beginning, middle and end. Make every word count and advance the story you want to tell. Consider each sentence and as: Does it serve a purpose? Is it advancing your story? If not, cut it. Make me care about your characters and get invested in their passions. Please see Best Bondage Erotica 2011-2015 for examples of the types of stories I’ve published.

Only unpublished stories will be accepted; this means no part of the story can have been published or posted previously anywhere, in print, online, in apps, on blogs, on bulletin boards or private groups (with the exception of ERWA Storytime), in newsletters, via email or anywhere else and cannot be published or posted in any form prior to the book’s publication in late 2019.

Rights (see below): non-exclusive right to publish your story in this anthology in print, ebook, and audiobook form. Authors will retain copyright to their stories. See contract terms below.

ONLY SUBMIT ONE FINAL, THOROUGHLY PROOFREAD, GRAMMATICALLY CORRECT VERSION OF EACH STORY. Since I will be reading and considering stories as they come in, only the initial story submission will be considered; subsequent versions of the same story will NOT be considered, so please keep this in mind and make sure the submission you send contains exactly the story title, author name and text you would like to see published in the book. If I am interested in a revised version of your story, I will contact you.

How to submit: I will consider a maximum of two stories per author. Submit each story as a separate attachment using an email address that you check regularly. Submit only 2,000-4,000 original, unpublished stories that are not being considered elsewhere. Stories under 2,000 words or over 4,000 words will be automatically rejected. I want only original work that has never been published in whole or in part in any format, including online and print. Must use U.S. grammar (double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.). Submit to bestbondageseries@gmail.com by attaching a Word .doc or .docx file, double spaced, Times New Roman Black font and titled BBE1 LastName StoryTitle. At the top of the first page, include legal name, pseudonym (if applicable), mailing address, phone number (only to be used for urgent communication about your story) and 50 word-or-under third person professional biography either on the first page of your story. This should be the exact bio you’d want published in the book. URLs in bios should be listed in the first sentence in this format:

Rachel Kramer Bussel (rachelkramerbussel.com) writes fiction and non-fiction.

All stories must have a title and author name included at the top of the first page with the submission (no untitled stories). Indent half an inch at the start of each paragraph. Use only double spacing for the entire file; do not add extra lines between paragraphs or use any other irregular spacing. If you cannot use Word, submit as both an RTF and include the full submission in the body of an email, including title, story text, bio, name and pseudonym (if applicable), mailing address and phone number.

Note: Do not start your tale with a thumping-loud bar or club scene. Actually, we never need to see another vampire in a club, ever again.  If you use this tired trope, you better do it in a way that blows our minds.

If you are unfamiliar with the series, please familiarize yourself with what we are looking for. Here’s a link to the Amazon store for ease. 

Rights: We would like new material only for this anthology. If your story is accepted, Cwtch gains nonexclusive right to publish your story in this anthology in print, ebook, and audiobook form.

  3. Include your legal name and pseudonym (if any), clearly indicating which is which, your mailing address, and your best email address  in the header of your Word file.
  4. Include a 50 word-or-under third person bio at the end of your story.  PLEASE, do not submit multiple files.

Please send the story from an email address you check frequently. We will usually confirm that we have received your submission within 72 hours.  Offers of acceptance will be made by July 15, 2018.
