Talk Dirty to Me

Edited by Genevieve Ash and Essemoh Teepee

 

Published by eSensual Books an imprint of Alternatepress Limited and part of the eSensual Group of Enterprises

Deadline for submissions: October 1 2016

Payment: $50.00 USD and a link copy of the anthology

This special call for submissions is a little different, it is for audio stories ONLY

We want you to write your hottest stories focusing on Dirty Talk and record them in your own voice. The setting, the players, and the details are your own, but think a late night call to a long distance lover, a special series of sexts during a long work day, the urgent cry of need that cannot be denied or verbal foreplay as you lie alongside your lover, whispering into their increasingly excited ears. 

These stories are to be written in the SECOND person POV, to encourage listeners to visualize the story as they go. You are constantly told by editors and writing gurus to 'show not tell', but in this case we want YOU to TELL the listener what THEY are experiencing, put them into the story: “Feel the heat of my body as I slide up closer to you,” or ”Listen to the way the rain falls gently on the tin roof.” Think of it as a special interaction with the listener to create immediate intimacy.

Based on the popular and unique style of Directed Erotic Visualisation© experiences, these stories will transport the listener to the very heart of your story, drawing them in to the scene and experience you are writing.

The Particulars: Stories should be between 2500 and 3500 words for approximately 20 -30 minutes of completed audio. Mailbigfile.com is great for sending larger files through email. All submissions must be in mp3 format. We suggest you produce your recording using Audacity free software and send the Audacity Data files and .aup files as well as the mp3, for editing purposes. If you are not familiar with audio editing it is not a problem, but do try for the cleanest recording possible with an absolute minimum of background sounds, echo etc. We have helpful recording tips on our website:

Send your audio file, .doc file of story (for clarifications) and a 50 word bio labelled Audio Anthology to: submissions@alternatepress.co.uk. Please include your legal name, address and desired pseudonym.

No scat, bestiality, necrophilia or characters under 18 years. Accepted stories will also be considered for a separate specialized DEV© experience.

Deadline for submissions is October 1, 2016. Anthology to be published January 2017.

A question:

What gender and orientation should we assume for the intended listener?

For this particular style of experience, it would seem to me that would be an important consideration?

Hello Nobilis

We cater to all genders and orientations, so the choice is yours. If we have a reasonably equal amount of male/ female submissions we may separate it into two volumes, by gender.

If i had to choose, it seems our 'story only' audios are more popular with women than men. Hope that helps.

Regards
Genevieve,

From our experience we have noted that there is a degree of cross gender interest and curiosity. So don't feel constrained to conform to the male voice talking to het female/gay man. Be innovative and adventurous, above all have some fun!
