Nominations are open for stories with lesbian content to be considered for this year’s Year’s Best Lesbian Fiction anthology. Short stories to 12,500 words featuring significant lesbian content, first published in an edited venue (online, magazine, anthology, etc) in 2009, are eligible for nomination.   Fanfic is not eligible, and erotica stories are strongly discouraged.

This year’s issue will be edited by Fran Walker and Andi Marquette and published by Bedazzled Ink Publishing.  Authors whose stories are selected for inclusion by the editors, and whose reprint rights are contracted for this anthology, will receive a $25 payment and one contributor’s copy.   The anthology will be published in print and e-book form in June 2010.

If you published one or more lesbian stories in 2009 that you feel would be of suitable quality and content and that you would like to nominate, please email me the date and venue of original publication and a copy of the story, preferably by 31 January 2010.  Alternatively, if you could forward this information to your authors, they can nominate their published stories themselves. Info on last year’s issue can be found here:  http://bedazzledink.com/?page_id=150

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions; please also feel free to forward this call for nominations to anyone you think might be interested.

Many thanks,

Fran Walker
