Iridescence: Lovely Shades of Lesbian Erotica

Iridescence is a new and exciting anthology that celebrates lesbians of color. I am looking for original, unpublished erotic stories from 1,500 to 6,000 words. Vanilla to BDSM. No eterosexual or bisexual themes.

I am hoping to represent a variety of races (e.g., black, Native American, Asian, Latina) and ethnicities in this anthology. Caucasian characters are acceptable, but a main character
must be a woman of color. Stories that exoticize or fetishize women of color will not be included.

A maximum of three submissions per person. Contributors will receive $50 and 2 copies of the anthology.

Send stories as Microsoft Word, plain text or RTF format, double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font to womenofcolor@ameritech.net. Put "Iridescence Submission" in the subject line.

Include all of the following information:

1. Name
2. Pseudonym (if applicable)
3. Address
4. Phone number
5. Email Address
6. 50-word Bio

Deadline: August 31, 2006 (This deadline is final. The manuscript will be submitted to Alyson soon after.)

You will receive a response from me by October 2006.
