Smut Peddler Returns! Submissions Are Open

Smut Peddler, an anthology minicomic series dedicated to erotica (which means porn that isn’t mean or degrading), is returning!

The last issue, #3, came out in 2005. As before, I’m part of the editorial group putting this together. This time around, we’re aiming for 150-200 pages, black-and-white, with a spine.

Spear-headed this time around by Spike (Templar, Arizona), there’s already a submission page (link no longer available). Here are the key points:

* The work must be sex-positive. The point of Smut Peddler is to have fun, not to work through your guilt over whatever.

* Also, new this time: every submission must have female participation. If you’re a male artist or writer who wants to apply to contribute, pair up with a woman.

* Activities shown must be legal. We don’t want to get anyone — creator, retailer, me — in trouble.

To apply, submit via email to Spike, a premise, estimation of length, and a sample of art and/or writing previously produced by the creators. She, Trisha Lynn, and I will be evaluating work based on quality, originality, and suitability for the premise. There are already a number of great contributors signed up.

Those selected to contribute will be paid $50 a page plus get comp copies. Proposals are due by end of June 2011. The project will be appearing in 2012, since contributors have until the end of 2011 to finish their work. (We don’t want anyone rushing anything because they ran out of time!)
