A project of Go Deeper Press

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions. We provide the following information as an archive.


The editors of Go Deeper Press are looking for original, erotic stories about femme fatales. Rather than using the femme fatales that already exist in story and film, we encourage unique characters, whether they’re set in modern or historical settings. From the leather clad biker girl to the socialite who’s dripping in diamonds, these female and female-identified women will seduce with a promise of danger. Think hardboiled, shadowy or moonlit locations, lipstick, cigarettes, and neat whiskies. We’d also like to see femme fatales from different cultures. All sexual identities welcome, including queer characters, doms and subs.
