Reaching Out from a Mind as Dirty as All Outdoors

If you get lucky enough, I might post adult-only material from time to time, so be 18 or over, or please be elsewhere.

I'll be discussing erotica here, the writing of it and the people who write it, as well as what we've written. I find all these aspects stimulating, but if any of them bore you, feel free to skim. You never know what you might miss, though.

Best Lesbian Erotica '16 Call for Submissions


Best Lesbian Erotica 2016
Editor: Sacchi Green
Publisher: Cleis Press
Deadline: June 1, 2015 (earlier encouraged)
Payment: $100 and 2 copies of the book within 90 days of publication

Rights: non-exclusive right to publish the story in this anthology in print, ebook and audiobook form. Authors will retain copyright to their stories. Standard Cleis Press contributor contract.

The Best Lesbian Erotica series has a special place in my heart. My first erotica publication was in BLE, many years ago, and I’ve had stories in eight volumes altogether, so I want to make this next edition worthy of the long tradition of sexy excellence. Only you writers can make this happen.
,
Give me your best work. Is there a story inside you burning to be written, or one already published that makes you especially proud--and extremely hot? I’ll consider up to two submissions per author, between 2000-4000 words preferred length. No simultaneous submissions. I’ll consider reprints, preferably published between June 2014 and June 2015, but hope to be seeing more new, unpublished work.

I want a variety of themes, voices, and tone. Diversity in ages, ethnicities, cultures, and physical attributes and abilities is welcome. The central figures must be lesbian, believable, fully developed characters. Give me vividly drawn settings, and plots or story arcs that grip the reader and don’t let go. Originality is especially welcome; write the story that only you can write. And, of course, I want intense sex scenes that flow naturally from the story as a whole. All flavors of sensuality are welcome, from vanilla to BDSM to edgy frontiers that surprise and startle the reader. A few stories with a speculative fiction bent, science fiction or fantasy, will be considered.

Send your submission as an attachment in .doc, .docx. or .rtf format, double spaced, Times New Roman black font, with story title, legal name, pseudonym (if applicable,) and mailing and e-mail addresses on the first page, to sacchigreen@gmail.com. Queries are welcome.

 Writers, start your engines!

  2. Hi Keri, the anthology is already filled and in production and will be out on February 9th. I don't know yet whether I'll be editing the 2017 edition, but I'll post my Call for Submissions here and on my Facebook page and various other places if it turns out that I am.
