Call for Erotic Tales set in South East Asia
Here's an interesting call for submissions from Singapore!
Call For Submissions
“The Best of Southeast Asian Erotica” volume is the follow-up volume to the highly successful “The Best of Singapore Erotica” published by Monsoon Books (Singapore) in 2006.
For the new anthology, we are looking for stories of 2,000 to 5,000 words that address the themes of sex or sensuality. Unlike the first book, this second volume will be looking for stories based in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines as well as Singapore.
The editor and publisher stress the fact that this is erotica, not pornography. The stories must be well-written, original pieces that look at sex and sensuality. (The first volume even had a few stories in which there was no actual sex presented, but only longing and fantasy.)
And to answer a question that we heard while compiling the first erotica volume: Yes, the characters involved can actually be married to each other. Sounds a little perverse, of course, but we believe that even married couples can engage in engaging erotica.
Payment will be set according to royalties, divided between all the writers in the anthology.
All submissions and inquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submissions is April 10, 2010.
