Call for Submissions: 5x5 Erotica

I’ve reviewed all the work recieved for this quarter, but was unable to glean twenty-five stories from the pool of submissions. So, rather than extend the deadline and ask for writers to send in more work, I’m going to do something different. I’m going to provide a theme ahead of time for Issue Five. Drum roll, if you please.

5x5 Fiction Issue Five
Theme: Erotica

That’s right, I’m looking for 25-word stories of erotica told in five sentences of five words each. Oh, and please read the guidelines (pretty please, with sugar on top), and the past four issues. Remember, I want complete stories, not poems or a bunch a feelings without substance.

Notice I said “erotica,” not porn. I’m not looking for a string of filthy words or throbbing members (at least not here and now). Give me the suggestive, the emotive; let me slip inside (so to speak) the characters and experience their desires.

I’m so excited. You know, in a non-sexual way.

Deadline is June 1st, 2012.

Please spread the word on all those Facebook and Twitter accounts.


5x5 Issue Five UPDATE

I'm in the process of reviewing submissions. I think my editor eye has slowly grown more critical. Thus far, very few acceptances.

I may have to opt for a Plan B on this issue...

Stay tuned.
