Call for submissions: the erotic
SEX KIKI is looking for pieces that explore this month’s theme, the erotic. Here’s how to become a cumtributor:
sex KiKi is a community that aims to center black queer women and femmes in sex-positive spaces, and the Sex KiKi bulletin serves as our online voice. We are looking for passionate discussion-provoking pieces in the form of personal essays, cultural critiques, first-hand experiences, column pitches, and poetry from writer/contributors that embody the spirit of intimacy, empowerment, and joy.
In her classic essay, Uses of the erotic, Audre Lorde describes erotic power as the “open and fearless underlining of my capacity for joy.” So let’s talk about what the erotic means to you. Let’s wax poetic about pop culture and art that captures the erotic. Let’s craft erotic short stories that would make Zane blush. Let’s perfect poems that meditate on uses of the erotic. Send us your fieriest pitches, and let the theme serve as a jumping-off point rather than a cage.
All submissions should be original work. Our themes set the tone for our general expectations but should not be limiting factors. We value fresh, revitalizing voices that want to explore the spectrum of Black sexuality. For the time being, we are looking for contributors that are able to volunteer their time, labor and energy.
Personal essays are 400-800 words that dive deep
Culture pieces are 300-800 word explorations on how the sex KiKi community relates to a specific work of art, film, tv, music, pop culture figure/movement
Columns first hand-experiences
Interviews Under 1000 word Q&As/one on one conversations
Poetry - free flowing
Here’s a sneak peek of our next theme:
