Sensory De-tails: The Five Furry Senses
Deadline: April 1, 2019
Editor: Thurston Howl
Word count: 2,500-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable

Furries are part animal, right? Believe it or not, dear writers, this often means they have heightened senses. This anthology aims to explore how those senses play into the characters’ lives, particularly their lives in the sheets. This erotic collection will be divided respectively into the five parts: sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. Again, this is supposed to be erotic, so consider this a writing challenge as much as a publication: you have to find a way to make one particular sense stand out as an erotic focus. Some easy topics would be things like rimming for taste, voyeurism for sight, musk for smell, etc. All story submissions must be “furry” and erotic in nature.

We will NOT accept:
Racism, sexism, or discrimination presented in a positive light.
Pedophilia or sex with characters under the age of 18 presented in a positive light.
Rape, torture, dubious consent, forced seduction presented in a positive light.
Snuff or Necrophilia presented in a positive light
Bestiality presented in a positive light
If you are in doubt, ASK. Better to ask then to get a straight up rejection! If you are unsure, just shoot me an email at jonathan.thurstonhowlpub@gmail.com. (restrictions borrowed from Voice: https://t.co/MWykJ6RY36)

You can submit up to three stories, but we will only accept one per author (if any).
Reprints are fine, but you have to own full permission of the work in order for us to consider it.
We will not accept simultaneous submissions.
Payment: Authors will receive a quarter cent (0.0025) per word.
Send submissions in .doc or .docx format to jonathan.thurstonhowlpub@gmail.com.
Title your email with the sense in all caps, e.g. “TASTE.” If you are sending more than one submission, send multiple emails instead of putting them all in one.
We will inform all authors regarding decisions within a week or two after the deadline.
Book will likely be released August in plenty of time for the sensory explosion that is autumn.

I may think about doing this one. So is there going to be only one story per Sense accepted into the anthology?
