We are creating an anthology of autobiographical stories about when you first discovered your interest in kink – D/s, S/m, fetish, voyeurism, etc. – and how it affected you. Tell us about pulling that girl’s hair on the playground and how you later discovered your love for doing rope bondage...or about your first cross dressing fantasy, and what it felt like to acknowledge your interest in lingerie! Stories do not have to contain erotic imagery, but if a sexual act or fantasy is part of your story, feel free to include that content.
Stories should be original works of 1,000-3,000 words, written in English, and submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org in .doc or .rtf format (NOT .pdf) by November 15, 2006. No payment is available at this time, but accepted stories will be published in the anthology and all accepted authors will be asked for a short bio with website or contact information. Please include ALL of the following information: Name, Pseudonym/Pen name, Email address, Telephone number; story title, copyright date (if any) and word count. All information submitted is confidential and will not be publicly released without permission from the author.
We welcome stories from authors of all ages, genders and sexual orientations, all races and ethnicities and national origins. We would like this anthology to represent the scope of kink – the age at which it starts, the feeling it evokes, and the meaning it creates in one’s life. As we would like this volume to be useful to academics as well as readers, please include some chronological reference about the year or era in which the narrative takes place. Stories may be previously published or unpublished.
We regret that we cannot publish poetry or any story that depicts an act which would be considered illegal in the author’s state or country of residence at the time it occurred; please refrain from sending work that would be unacceptable for publication, according to the above guidelines.
