I seek female creative writers who are interested in exploring sexually charged themes through a succession of short stories where each story examines a particular nuance of that theme in a manner that both satisfies the curiosity of the author and titillates the senses of the reader.
It is entirely up to you if you use the same narrator for all your stories, or various narrators, and it is entirely up to you what sexually charged theme you explore - Erotic Aria is open to most anything.
Your 10 stories should, combined, be somewhere around 25.000 words. Each story can be anywhere from 1000-3000 words but please note that no story may exceed 3200 words.
Combined, your 10 stories should form a cohesive whole. They should detail a journey from A-Z. This should not be open ended, this is a complete product, a 10-chapter novella that will be available for free download from Erotic Aria later on.
Payment for each story is $25, including oDesk fees. The project total is $250 including fees. The duration of the project is 10 weeks.
You are to publish one story per week, on Saturdays, for 10 successive Saturdays. A publication tool on Erotic Aria enables you to post more than one story but to stagger their publication.
A 40-50 word summary is required for each story you publish at the time of publication, as well as a 100 word summary for the entire project which is to be delivered at project conclusion.
Please make sure to visit http://EroticAria.com before you bid on this project, to make sure you agree with how we handle things. Please also note that Erotic Aria just went from Alpha to Beta, we are semi-public now but expect to go properly public through gentle promotion late in March.
Erotic Aria is a very 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.
YOUR EROTIC ARIA PROFILE
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).
Please visit my profile http://eroticaria.com/Jen to understand what an Erotic Aria profile looks like.
If you are not willing to maintain a profile you should not apply to this project.
IS ENGLISH NOT YOUR FIRST LANGUAGE?
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.
ABOUT THE SITE
Erotic Aria is an almost-public but already budding literary social hub for writers and readers of erotica, paranormal erotica and the very very personal blog.
YOUR SEXUAL TEXT
Your sexual text should be fairly explicit and you should of course call a spade a spade and you should never shy away from colorful, descriptive language and you are of course free to use coarse language if such is the nature of your beast, but your choice of words should never be vulgar, obscene, degrading, violent, filthy or discusting - in other words, no smut.
Payments will be issued at the rate of $15 per published story, including fees. 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.
ABOUT YOUR APPLICATION
Please tell me a little about yourself, your thoughts on this project and what sexually charged theme you want to explore, and please submit a sample of the kind of writing the site might expect to see from you.
Thank you for reading.
