I can’t believe how damn fast this last year went! Seems like I just turned in my story for last year’s Charity Sip!
Re-posted from Torquere:
It’s that time again, where all of our great authors get together to donate to a charity working within the GLBTQ community! This year, Torquere Press has chosen NOH8 as the donation charity, and authors who contribute agree to donate 100% of their royalties to NOH8, with Torquere Press matching the donation.
This year’s theme, since this is Torquere Press’ ninth anniversary as well,
is leather. Nine is the leather anniversary, y’all! How cool is that?
Leather can be reflected in any way in the story. BDSM may immediately
spring to mind, but leather can also mean cowboys, fast cars, Italian shoes, jewelry, or any of a million other things. We want stories that show LGBTQ characters in positive situations, and have strong stories with happy endings. (Or at least happy for now.)
Word count is 3000 to 8000 words, and those limits are firm. Please adjust your manuscripts accordingly before submission. Deadline for submissions is July 1, 2012. Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with Charity Sip Blitz in the subject line. For formatting questions or other content questions, please refer to our general guidelines, here: http://torquerepress.com/submissions.html
Leather up and send us your charity sips for NOH8!
