Call for Submissions: Short Erotic Fiction

Call for Submissions:


Short Literary Erotica Fiction; 2,000 - 6,000 words
For Anthology Series: "Lyrotica"

In 1964, Justice Potter Stewart tried to define pornography, or what is obscene, by saying, "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced... but I know it when I see it... "

Which is kind of funny, because that's exactly how many people feel about Literary Fiction; we're not exactly sure how to describe it, but we know it when we see it.

In order to further our battle against entropy in the universe of letters, Vagabondage Press has decided to stir up a little chaos by combining the two and launching our new anthology series of Literary Erotica, working title "Lyrotica" scheduled for release in September 2010.

We are currently seeking well-written pieces of steamy literature--with the emphasis on literature. This is smut with its opera gloves on, elegant and provocative, perhaps even satisfying—but never tawdry. (Well, maybe just a little.)

The focus is on character development and thematic plot via the wonderful world of human reproduction—rated NC-17. All genres will be considered and we hold no editorial bias in regards to stories for or about individuals of any race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or planet of origin.

As well as our own in-house reprobates, our Guest Editor for the Lyrotica Anthology is none other than Creative Loafing Sex and Love columnist, Rebecca Ammon, who will be helping us make sure that the finished product is racy enough for any connoisseur.
