About

A woman's virginity is the ultimate taboo topic. In many societies, it is prized to the point of fanaticism. Such importance and value is placed on it that it sometimes takes years for a woman to overcome fears associated with losing her virginity. Letting someone close is difficult enough; letting them close when it's your first time can be terrifying in the same moment as it's exciting. For The First Time, we are looking for F/F short stories that center around women losing their virginity to other women. As can be expected, the definition of virginity here can be unorthodox, so feel free to experiment and challenge your characters' perception of the topic! Genre is also fluid here, so you can play with female characters from Science Fiction to Urban Fantasy to Historical. While a Happily Ever After isn't required—first times aren't always forever—we ask that every submission end on a positive, high note.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
