I see a long term relationship with mature female writers who are interested in exploring, through a thoughtful and lyrical approach, the darker sides of love.

This is a slow project. It is for 10 lyrical pieces (see about word count below) to be posted over a period of no less than 20 weeks but gladly more, on Erotic Aria (http://eroticaria.com). The payment per piece is $10.

Please make sure to visit the site before you bid on this project, to make sure you agree with how we handle things.

Erotic Aria is a budding and almost public literary social hub for writers and readers of all manner of writings that touch in some manner upon love and erotica, and due to the nature of the beast the language and subject matter of writings can follow the rainbow of content-ratings for language and subject matter going from PG zero through hardcore pornography.

Our primary concern is the quality of your writings, not the perceived explicitness or impropriety of your choice of words.

Favoured short formats on Erotic Aria are properly structured drabbles, sketches, vignettes and flash fiction. The favoured word count is 300 words or so, except drabbles which should be 80-100 words. Please read this post http://eroticaria.com/blog/Guidelines_on_how_to_classify_your_story_on_Erotic_Aria_1_4578 to learn about our requirements for the various formats.

Erotic Aria is a 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.

So. If you are a mature female writer and if you are interested in exploring dark and twisted love, using the language of your choice and the formats drabble, sketch, vignette, flash fiction, then I will be very very happy to hear from you.

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).

If you are not willing to maintain a profile you should not apply to this project.

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.

Erotic Aria is an almost-public but already budding literary social hub for writers and readers of a variety of genres that include love, erotica, pornography, fantasy and the paranormal, in addition to introspective and ultra-personal blogs, and opinions on love and sex related topics.

You are free to use whatever language you choose and you are of course free to call a spade a spade and be as colorful an explicit as you like, but your choice of words should never be vulgar, obscene, degrading, violent, filthy or discusting - in other words, no smut. You are of course free to use coarse language.

You will post NO MORE than one story at a time. A period of NO LESS than 14 days must pass between the publication of stories.

Payments will be issued at the rate of $10 per published story. 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.

Your writings are governed by our Terms of use, which among other things state that the copyright of everything you post on Erotic Aria is yours.

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.
