WASN’T THAT SPECIAL: an anthology about ‘your first time’ — Call for submissions

Attn: writers/artists/regular folks looking for a good time. Call for submissions.

WASN’T THAT SPECIAL is an anthology about “your first time” whether it was awkward, strange, hilarious or exuberant–however it was. Send submissions about losing your virginity or the first sexual experience with a new partner that either went wildly wrong or stunningly right to wasntthatspecial@gmail.com

We are primarily looking for creative non-fiction pieces detailing this experience. We prefer humorous, off-beat, bizarre and artful. We aren’t looking for hardcore erotica but if you have a good one, send it. (wink, wink)

Please send: 1 creative non-fiction piece up to 1500 words

1 fiction submission up to 1500 words

1-3 flash fiction pieces (200-500 words is preferred)

Poems will also be considered, but please do not send more than 3

Attach your submission as a .doc or .rtf file or paste into the body of an email.

Somewhere in the beginning of the file, mention your name/pen name, email and any other contact info.

Please include a short bio written in the third person.
Look over your work before sending. Better yet have someone else look over it too.

At this time, there is no payment for inclusion of the anthology. Books will be printed out POD through Amazon at or near cost.

The window for submissions is November 14th, 2014-January 1st

First come first serve. The earlier you send it the better. Make your mom blush.


You do not have to have your real name attached to your writing. Publish it however you would like. Submit however you would like


anyone interested in getting involved in the project beyond a contributor, let me know. Looking for readers/editors.

Also looking for photography submissions, art submissions, black and white.
