Call For Submissions

The Princess's Bride: Lesbian Fairy Tale Erotica
Editor: Sacchi Green
Publisher: Cleis Press
Deadline: July 1, 2014
Payment: $50-$100, depending on length, and 2 copies of the book
Word Count: 3000-6000

Fairy tales, legends, myths, with all those heroes who win the day and, of course, the girl—what's up with that? Why can't we have heroines who win each other? Let's have stories of erotic romance and adventure with women who use their wits and/or weapons and come together in a blaze of passion.

Adaptations of traditional tales can work, but merely changing the gender of a character won't be enough. Old stories updated to contemporary times would be all right. Original plots with a fairy tale sensibility are fine, and so is diversity of character, ethnicity, culture, and age. Did Scheherazade know a thousand and one more tales she told in the harem but never shared with the Sultan?

Witches and trolls and dragons are okay (make sure you know the difference between European dragons and the oriental breed) and they don't necessarily need to be villains. Weddings aren't required, and neither is Magic isn't always required, as long as the writing has a fantasy lilt to it. Royal blood doesn't much matter, and neither do actual weddings. A few humorous stories would be welcome, and even more so would be deeper explorations of universal themes. The old fairy tales were often many-layered, with a core of darkness.

Above all, there must be an intense relationship between two (or more) women, along with whatever degree and flavor of sex their story demands. Kink is fine, sweet is nice, noble self-restraint flaring into a blaze at last is dandy. Vivid settings and complex characters (even the villains, if possible) are also required. And if your story should hint slyly at a certain film with a tongue-in-cheek treatment of fantasy clichés, well, "As you wish."

How to submit: Send your document (double-spaced, ½ inch paragraph indents) as an attachment in .doc, .docx, or .rtf. Include your name and contact information in both your email and your document.

Unpublished work preferred, but reprints will be considered (at a somewhat lower rate) so specify any previous publication. Send to sacchigreen@gmail.com. Queries are welcome.
