For The Girls is currently seeking written contributions
from skilled writers.
We are looking for high quality
super-short (flash) fiction to feature twice a month or more. Ideally we want succinct, erotic pieces that successfully get an idea across in a small number of words. Cleverness is encouraged, as is out-and-out dirty hotness. The piece should, of course, be aimed at a female audience.
Flash fiction stories should be a minimum of 300 and a maximum
of 500 words in length.
BEDHEAD GRAFFITI - GUEST COLUMNISTS
For The Girls is introducing a new column: Bedhead Graffiti. This column will appear monthly and feature a different writer each month. We are looking for opinions, epistles, musings, rants and reasoned argument on the topic of sex and relationships.
The writing may encompass diverse topics such as sex, porn, erotica, feminism, sexuality, popular culture, memes, politics, reproduction, health, children, family, life and death. Personal anecdotes are welcome, research and fact-checking are encouraged. Humour is also encouraged but not required. The column needs to be witty, entertaining and well-written. It should be written explicitly for a female audience. We encourage both established writers and newcomers to the field.
Columns should ideally be 1000 to 1500 words in length.
US$20 per Flash Fiction piece
US$50 per Bedhead Graffiti piece
