Call for Submissions: Torn in Two (short story collection highlighting bisexual men | Storm Moon Press)

Post date: Sunday, June 24, 2012
Deadline: 30 June 2012

It is often said that bisexual men are 'torn in two' by the opposing expectations from society. They are often accused of being confused or riding the proverbial fence between gay and straight. To many others, their attraction to men makes them 'not straight', while their attraction to women makes them 'not gay'. It is this conflict that sets them apart and often ostracizes them from both communities. At Storm Moon Press, we're of the mind that bisexual men are often misrepresented in fiction, and in this anthology, we would love to see that change for the better.

Torn In Two is a collection of short stories highlighting bisexual men, including their relationships with both men and women. We recognize that different characters will have different levels of interest in their partners, but above all else, we want to see stories that celebrate that diversity. These submissions need to contain an HEA/HFN ending, as we want to portray bisexual men in a positive, hopeful, and respectful way.

EXPECTED RELEASE: November 9, 2012

HEA or HFN Ending Required? Yes
