Call For Submissions

Me and My Boi: Queer Erotic Stories
Editor: Sacchi Green
Publisher: Cleis Press
Preferred Length: 2000-5000 words
Deadline: December 1, 2013
Payment: $50 per story and two copies of the anthology

This book is a celebration of all things boi, butch, masculine-of-center; the people we love who put their own personal spins on the gender spectrum. Bois who like girls, bois who like bois, bois who like both; those who don't label themselves bois at all but can't stand to wear a skirt. Tell me stories about more-or-less female-identified, screw-the-binary free spirits of all flavors. Transwoman characters who identify as lesbians are fine, as long as the focus is on the lesbian experience. Cool bois, hot bois, swaggering bois, shy bois, geek boys, drag kings, leather bois, flannel bois. Young is fine, but so are butch daddies, mentors, and role models.

As always, give me fully-developed characters, vivid settings, original voices, intriguing themes, and steamy sex that develops naturally out of all the rest. I'm finding some confusion among writers about exactly which part of the gender spectrum I'm looking for, so I'll be more precise. At least one character should be on the boi/butch/tomboy/or even 'passing' side of identifying as lesbian, but not quite over the edge to being transmen, although they may be contemplating traveling that path. Female-identified but with some degree, sometimes, of masculine gender presentation. Ask if you're not sure.

UPDATE: I find that some writers are hesitant about this theme because of worry about not getting it 100% right. While I do expect to use some stories that go deeply into queer theory and draw on intense or even traumatic personal experience, I want other fiction as well, from the girl next door who happens to sport a tool belt and a buzz cut, to weddings where one or both brides wears a tux, to orgies where size only counts when it comes to silicone in your choice of rainbow colors, to finding your inner butch late in life.

Original stories preferred, multiple submissions okay, and deadline extensions possible. E-mail submissions (.doc or .rtf files only) and queries to:
