Calls for Submissions

Hey, kids–

Lambda Literary always has some groovy calls for submission going on.

Like, for example, this sexy anthology of dark erotic tales via Riptide Publishing:

Riptide Publishing Open Submission Call: Bump in the Night

Keep us earthbound or launch us into outer space. Unveil the hungry horrors of this world or of one full of fantasy and magic. Show us too-friendly creatures from the deep or amorous plants in the rainforest. Expose us to a mad scientist’s tireless steam-powered machine or a matriarchal tribe’s sperm-milking farm. Take us into Hell, or merely into the dark recesses of someone’s dreams. Show us eager “victims” or hesitant ones, or even full-blown resistance . . . as long as it all works out in the end.

Whatever they may be, explore your wildest fantasies in this collection of dark erotic tales.

(These stories will be released as a single ebook and print anthology. Select stories may be released individually several months after the release of the anthology.)

Length: 5,000 to 10,000. Slightly longer or shorter stories may be accepted, but be prepared to wow us.

M2Q Zine:
Genderqueer is a word that points to infinite possibilities for playing with, sabotaging, cutting up, reinventing and/or reclaiming gender. However, there is a frequent perception that genderqueer is most often claimed by people who were assigned female at birth. This zine aims to address this by creating a space for genderqueer people who were assigned male at birth to tell their stories, examine and explore their identities and experiences, and offer their perspectives and visions on gender, queerness, and beyond.

The theme of Issue 6 is Muse.
