Slash Books Call For Submissions - "In Uniform"

(Almost) nothing is sexier than a person in uniform!

Slash Books is looking for short stories (500 - 20K words) that explore the gay or lesbian relationships of people in uniform - any uniform. Firefighters, police, french maids... all of these are valuable fodder for our target authors. We want to learn all about the many ways people in uniform find love!

Your story should focus on the relationship and its evolution. While sex is a part of a healthy relationship, we're looking for plot and characterization, not simple PWP. Intriguing characters and interesting situations are the ticket to success here. Be creative! All genres (humour, action, angst, etc) welcome.

CFP: Terrified White Masculinity in Twentieth-Century American Literature (NeMLA 4/7-11, Montreal)

Monday, June 1, 2009 - 3:42pm
Northeast Modern Language Association, 41st Anniversary Conference, Montreal

From Quentin Compson to Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom and beyond, twentieth-century American literary representations of white masculinity reveal a preoccupation with the idea of terror. Why? Is terror a necessary condition of white American masculinity? Was it new to the twentieth century, and does it continue in the twenty-first? Do non-white-male authors represent masculinity in its terror? Why does the triangulation of whiteness, masculinity, and "the American century" give rise to so much terror? Please send 250- to 500-word abstract by September 30, 2009 to Sharon Paradiso at sparadis@endicott.edu.
