Call for Gay Stories: Beach Bum (Cleis Press)

Post date: 14 February 2012
Deadline: 1 March 2012

I've been invited by Cleis Press to together an anthology based on the kind of men who spend their lives around a beach, and the men who love them. I hope to recruit authors who can recreate the best beaches of the world, from Florida to Hawaii, Australia to Brazil, and everywhere in between. Living in Florida, and writing often about tropical locations, I know a lot about the kind of guys who hang around beaches.

But I'm still able to be surprised, wooed and excited by your stories! I hope to get stories that feature a range of ages, body types and permutations as well as great locations.

Story length: 3,000 — 5,000 words
Deadline: March 1, 2012
Publication Date: Summer 2012
Payment: $60.00 per story, payable on publication, plus 1 copy of the book

Submit your story to Neil Plakcy at plax@bellsouth.net as a MS word attachment. Please double space and indent the first line of each paragraph by a half inch.
