[address removed]11:37 PM (8 hours ago)to meCalling All Closeted Erotic Writers . . . And Not So ClosetedYou are not alone.A lot of people have dabbled in erotic and romantic writing. Some have shared their stories with friends or with a lover, but a lot of people keep them hidden away. Erotica is a window to the soul of the writer. Even famous eroticists Anais Nin didn’t want some of her stories published until after her death. You don’t have to wait that long. 220 Publishing is accepting submissions for an anthology of erotic poems and short stories. Each writer can submit up to three pieces of varying length. Just keep in mind that the submissions are going in a book; they should not be books themselves. Anything over 5,000 words will probably be cut (or better be one heck of a page turner).What we’re looking for: Creativity. Imagination. Romance. Conflict. Stimulating prose. Great storytelling. An open mind. Will probably pass on stories with an inordinate use of profanity, violence, or raunch.All submissions will be edited for grammar and content. 220 Publishing’s editors will work with you to make any changes and suggestions. All submissions will be subject to final approval by the publisher. You CAN write under a pseudonym. What you get: You get published. At no cost to you, your thoughtful prose will be immortalized in print, opening doors to new opportunities for you to write and self-promote. An invitation and special recognition at the anthology’s launch event in Chicago.A chance to make some money. As a contributor, you will receive a share of sales proceeds proportionate to that of the other contributors (sorry no million dollar deals but a small percentage) also you'll be able to buy the books at a deep discount that you can then sell for a profit and use as a promotional tool. *The anthology will remain the exclusive property of 220 Publishing.Deadline for submissions is March 1st, 2013.Send submissions/questions to info@220communications

We are a group of unbelievably fun friends that meet regularly at different places around the burbs. Most of us are in the age range of 50+ but we do have some mature 40-somethings and some very alive 60-somethings. We invite all our friends---SINGLE, WIDOWED, COMMITTED RELATIONSHIPS AND EVEN THOSE THAT ARE MARRIED AND WANT A FUN NIGHT OUT- to invite their friends to come and hang out with us and meet our friends and make new friends.
