Edited by Richard Labonte, judged by Emanuel Xavier
Publisher: Cleis Press
Short stories, novel excerpts, memoirs, narrative artwork, essays - original or reprint - are now being accepted for Best Gay Erotica 2008, to be published by Cleis Press in late fall of 2007.
Maximum length preferred: 6,000 words; no minimum. Reprints must have appeared in print or online, or been scheduled to appear, between July 2006 and June 2007.
BGE is not a "theme" anthology, so anything goes - any fantasy, all flesh, any kink, every genre - as long as the work is intensely erotic, lusciously literary, and quite, quite queer.
Series editor Richard Labonte will select 35-40 stories from among the submissions, with winners chosen from the finalists by this year's judge, Emanuel Xavier.
Deadline: April 30, 2007
Queries and submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org, in .doc format.
