Hard Erotica - Short Short Stories (1000-1500 words) - Friday publication - (adult content required)
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
I seek a long term relationship with female creative writers who are interested in exploring the many faces of sex, sexuality and sexual relations through a succession of short, explicit, colorful pieces that are tied together by a common protagonist.
The word count for each piece should hover between 1000-1500 words, preferrably closer to 1000. Payment per piece is $15, including oDesk fees. This project is for 10 pieces, and we do this on the assumption that one project will lead to another, which should give you all the time you need to explore...the things you want to explore.
This is a slow project. You are to publish only 1 piece per week, every Friday, for 10 successive weeks. The site offers scheduled publishing which allows you to post more than one piece at a time but to schedule their publication for successive Fridays.
Please make sure to visit the site before you bid on this project, to make sure you agree with how we handle things. Please also note that Erotic Aria just went from Alpha to Beta, we are semi-public now but expect to go properly public through gentle promotion late in March.
Erotic Aria is a very public site built in such a way that everything posted can be shared on social networks and located through search engines. The long term goal of the site, in working long-term with individual authors, is to enhance online awareness of their writings.
YOUR EROTIC ARIA PROFILE
You will be required to create your own profile on Erotic Aria through which you publish your writings. This can be an author profile (using your name/pen name and profile photo) or a character profile (if your writings use the voice and viewpoint of the same character throughout).
Please visit my profile http://eroticaria.com/Jen to understand what an Erotic Aria profile looks like.
If you are not willing to maintain a profile you should not apply to this project.
IS ENGLISH NOT YOUR FIRST LANGUAGE?
We absolutely welcome approaches from women who don't have English as their primary language and/or who live in countries and/or cultures that don't adhere to accepted Western standards. However, we require an above average command of the English language and absolute honesty about your country and culture and heritage.
ABOUT THE SITE
Erotic Aria is an almost-public but already budding literary social hub for writers and readers of erotica, paranormal erotica and the very very personal blog.
YOUR SEXUAL TEXT
Your sexual text should be explicit and you should of course call a spade a spade and you should never shy away from colorful, descriptive language and you are of course free to use coarse language if such is the nature of your beast, but your choice of words should never be vulgar, obscene, degrading, violent, filthy or discusting - in other words, no smut.
Payments will be issued at the rate of $15 per published story, including fees. On the day the story is published you should send me a payment reminder through the oDesk message system. It is not rude to send a payment reminder - quite the contrary, it is very necessary and simply ensures that you get paid on time.
All writers must adhere to certain guidelines.
ABOUT YOUR APPLICATION
Please tell me a little about yourself and your thoughts on this project, and please submit a sample of the kind of writing the site might expect to see from you.
Thank you for reading.
