Black Label Books (http://blacklabelbooks.blogspot.com/) is seeking dark, erotic poetry for Summer 2010 release. There will be NO compensation for accepted authors/poets. All net proceeds from the collection will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign, an organization fighting for QLTBG rights. (http://www.hrc.org/about_us/index1.html) --This effort has not been endorsed by the organization at this time. If you would prefer to donate personally, visit the link.
I have heard from the HRC. They will not allow BLB to use their logo, but will acknowledge the source of donations! Here is part of their reply:


You can certainly send any donations you collect from your fundraiser to our offices, and we can acknowledge the gift in our records as being from your event. However, we have to ask that you not use or print the equality logo in any of your marketing materials. The equality logo is a trademark owned by HRC and to preserve our rights to it, we must control its use, and its use must be associated with our work.
Length: 5 stanzas, 7 lines each (max)

Number of submissions per author limited to 5. Send as .doc or .odt file.

Artwork: Scanned black and white artwork is encouraged. 300 dpi, jpeg only if sending .psd file. Original art only. One art submission per poem, per poet. Attach to submission email.
Deadline: May 1, 2011
Anticipated Release: July 4, 2011


If you do not receive a response in 14 days you may send a status update request.

Send submissions to: blacklabelbooks AT gmail DOT com




Each poem must be dark and erotic. Any sexual orientation. Experimental verse welcome!
