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 female-born, screw-the-binary free spirits of all flavors. 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.

UPDATE: 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 transgender, although they may be contemplating traveling that path. Female-born, female bodied, but with some degree, sometimes, of masculine gender presentation. Ask if you’re not sure.

E-mail submissions (.doc or .rtf files only) and queries to: sacchigreen@gmail.com.

This book will probably be published in 2015.
