Acceptance Letter for More Poems–Let’s Celebrate <3

O'keeffe 8-21-13 plums in bowl

Delicious news, darlings: I’ve just had an acceptance letter from Nefarious Ballerina. Five of my sexy erotic poems will appear in their next issue, due to be published in November. The editor asked if I’d pass along to my fellow erotic poets that they are accepting submissions until August 31st. Hurry and send something scorching their way, loves. Here’s more info about them, including guidelines. I love their literary aesthetic statement:

“Nefarious Ballerina is centered around erotica but is about so much more. As sexual beings we exist on many other planes than just the animal: religous, mystical, mythical, spritual, historical, literary…The poetry we publish has that certain extra intangible about it….We are interested in the intelligently erotic….It’s the fire that burns in our heads and hearts as well as our loins. It’s more about what goes on above the waist than below it. It’s about the animal in us that makes us human and how much we’ve evolved as a species — and how much we’ve stayed the same.

Lately I’ve discovered that we’re looking for so much more, more layers of meaning, and searching for a greater context…sensual, but also historical, spiritual, mythical, psychic…all these other parts of our being that are likewise looking to be satisfied. Above all we’re looking for talent and an
appreciation of how your particular piece of writing or artwork becomes part of the larger discourse of human experience. Take me to the second circle of hell and back again…”!nefarious-ballerina/c106l
