Zak Jane Keir, Fantasy Publications, 4 Selsdon Way,
London E14 9EL 30
Hips and is seeking freelance copywriters for our monthly newsletter. We are looking for steamy, flash-fiction stories featuring “well-rounded” women and sexy lingerie; especially stories about women who have a positive outlook about their bodies and their sexuality.

What we want:
-- Smart, sexy and short- 500 to 1000 word stories that grab the readers' attention with the first sentence. We want stories that portray a moment in time, a small peek into someone's life, just one issue rather than an entire life history.
-- Steamy without explicit sex- How much sexual tension can you create without using detail-driven, graphic descriptions of sex acts?
-- Curvy Women- Stories involving "well-rounded" women, from the point of view of a full-figured woman or the admirer of a full-figured woman.
-- Lingerie- Since we are a lingerie site, lingerie must be an integral part of the story. -- Use one or two items from our site in a natural and appealing way. Don't say, “He took off her chemise, tossed it on the floor and said he liked her better naked.”
-- Humor- We love humor, so if it works, use it.

What we do not want:
-- Sloppy writing
-- Stories with graphic or hard core sex
-- Work which is discriminatory or biased in nature or tone, which contains bigotry, sexism, racism, violence or libel, involves extreme negativity, pain, degradation, abuse, rape, incest or sex with anyone under the age of 18.
-- Sexually explicit material written by anyone under the age of 18 (or 21 if 21 is the age of majority in your state).
-- Work which is copyrighted in whole or in part to anyone but the author.
-- Work sent in by anyone other than the author.
-- Work which could violate the obscenity laws of any jurisdiction.
