Hi writers! You know I love to support charitable organizations, whether it's through front-line volunteer work or by donating my writing, or proceeds therefrom. Well, here's a great opportunity to help out the "Getting Better" project with Torquere Press. I've already sent in my submission (fingers crossed) and if you're a writer of LGBT fiction I hope you'll consider sending something in too:
Spread the word!
For the 2011 "Getting Better" Charity Sip Blitz, Torquere Press' beneficiary is the It Gets Better Project
. We're looking for positive, romantic stories that depict GLBT people in functional, adult relationships (m/m, f/f, m/m/f, and transgender or transsexual protagonists). Stories should have a well-developed plot, strong characters, and a fully realized conclusion, with a strong preference for a happy ending. All heat levels and genres are welcome!
Manuscripts should be original works of 3,000 to 8,000 words; no reprints, please. Authors will sign a one-year agreement to donate all royalties to the It Gets Better Project, with the understanding that Torquere Press will match all donations 100%.
Deadline for submission is July 25, 2011. Torquere Press general writing guidelines apply: see http://www.torquerepress.com/submissions/index.html for details. Please submit your story in .rtf format, along with a synopsis, your contact information, and author biography, to
submissions@ torquerepress. com with "Charity Sip" in the subject line.
The Charity Sip Blitz will be published in September.
