BEST GAY EROTICA 2012 (Cleis Press, November 2011)
Series editor, Richard Labonte; 2012 judge, Larry Duplechan
Deadline: April 30, 2011
Guidelines: Short stories, novel excerpts, memoirs, narrative artwork, erotic essays – original or reprint – are now being accepted for Best Gay Erotica 2012 (the 17th edition). Maximum length: 7,000 words.
Reprints must have appeared in print or online, or been scheduled to appear, between July 2010 and August 2011. BGE is not a “theme” anthology, so anything goes—any fantasy, all flesh, any kink, every genre—as long as the work is intensely erotic, lusciously literary, and quite, quite queer.
Thirty-five to 40 stories will be selected by series editor Richard Labonte from among submissions. Winners will be selected from the finalists by this year’s judge, Larry Duplechan, author of the Lambda Literary Award-winning the novel Got ’til Its Gone.
Queries and submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Multiple submissions okay in .doc or .rtf; include real name/address/ 50-word bio. Payment $50-$75 plus two contributor copies.
