Writer's Call, Upcoming Deadline

Coming Together: Girl on Girl is a collection of lesbian erotica and erotic romance edited by award-winning author Leigh Ellwood. All proceeds from the sales of this anthology, and any individual titles released in eBook or audiobook, will benefit the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

Deadline: April 15th

We love women who love women…and women who may love more than one at the same time! Coming Together: Girl on Girl is a celebration of Sapphic proportions, and we want your hottest, sexiest stories about the love and passion Jeanette Winterson once described as “mirror geography.”

We would love to see:

Engaging characters we’ll remember long after we’ve read the story.

Smoldering sexual tension and explicit prose guaranteed to melt a digital reader.

Believable passion between two or more lesbian and/or bisexual or bi-curious women.

All sub-genres will be considered. Give us secretive lovers in Regency England, lesbians in space, interracial entanglements, whips and chains…or mix and match! So long as the focus remains on F/F sex.

We don’t want to see:

The usual no-no’s: no incest, underage folks, rape as titillation, bodily waste, snuff.

No men are allowed to play this time around, sorry. Your story can have male characters, but once it hits the bedroom it’s ladies only (unless your guy is just there to watch – we’d have to read the story first). Stories with trans-lesbian characters, however, will be considered. ;-)

If you have questions that aren’t covered here, feel free to contact the editor at
