Gay Bear/Leather/Kink Publication Accepting Submissions (Castro / Opper market, a thriving gay
and lesbian community in San Francisco.)
Writers and Designers
A new adult lifestyle publication aimed at the gay bear, leather, and kink culture is looking for lively, entertaining articles and fiction. We need short, easily digested pieces that speak to the interests and needs of the well-seasoned gay man who knows what he likes, in a community with exotic tastes.
In particular, we are looking for:
- interviews with noteworthy individuals in the community,
- tips and techniques for safe fun play,
- new bear fiction and comics,
- coverage of nonprofit and charity organizations,
- reviews of nationally available products and services,
- brand comparisons for alcohols, cigars, foods, sex toys, etc.
- media reviews of relevant movies and websites,
- event reports from social gatherings around the world.
We pay five cents a word upon publication for all rights, and will not consider work which has been published elsewhere, including online. Our usual article is between 500 and 750 words long, but we will consider pieces as long as 1,500 words, or as short as 100 words.
We prefer publishing articles that are submitted with proposed photographs or illustrations (300dpi CMYK tiff format). Our contents are adult in nature, but we do not publish explicit hardcore images. If you include appropriate artwork, with paperwork demonstrating that you own the rights, and it is accepted for publication, we will pay an additional $25 per article for all rights to the artwork submitted.
All writers and persons featured in our magazine must be legal adults. Please include consent forms and contact information for identifiable people and organizations. Your name (or chosen pseudonym) will be displayed in a byline with the piece when it is published in print. A
photograph of the author, email address, URL, or other identifying information may be included as well depending on the nature of the piece, and the regularity of your contributions.
Please send any submissions for consideration by email in plain text format, pasted into the body of the message, or attached with minimal formatting as a Word-compatible file. All artwork should be attached as full-resolution digital photographs, 300 dpi TIFF files, or PDF files.
