Coming Together Girl on Girl Anthology Submission Call!

This might be of interest for those writers of Lesbian fiction:

Coming Together, an organization of authors, editors, and artists volunteering their talents to create literary anthologies to benefit various charities, recently announced a call for submissions for their newest project. COMING TOGETHER: GIRL ON GIRL will be a collection of lesbian erotica and erotic romance edited by award-winning author Leigh Ellwood. All proceeds from the sales of this anthology, and any individual titles released in eBook or audiobook, will benefit the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

Ellwood, an author and editor, is an bestseller with a collection of lesbian short stories. SHE LOVES ME by Ellwood was also a finalist in the Gold Crown Literary Society Goldie Awards for Best Erotica. Ellwood said she chose the NCLR as the beneficiary for this upcoming title because of their history of compassionate work. “It's heartbreaking to read some of the stories [LGBT families] share, particularly those who are unable to see their life partners in the hospital because they are not legally recognized as married,” said Ellwood. “I have supported the NCLR in the past and hope with this collection of stories we can give more to those who need the legal and moral support.”

Submissions for COMING TOGETHER: GIRL ON GIRL will be accepted through April 15, 2013, for a Summer, 2013 publication. The anthology will be available in print and eBook formats through the major book retailers. Interested authors may visit the official Coming Together site at for submission guidelines for this and other open projects.
