SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 1, 2013
RELEASE DATE: September 2013
From nin’s Tumblr:
welcome to nin, a journal of erotic poetics devoted to exploring sex and the body through language.
nin is currently accepting submissions for its inaugural issue in september 2013. please click on the SUBMIT tab for instructions on how to send us your work. submissions close august 1.
nin will appear in both print and digital formats. for more information about the journal and the motivations behind it, please click on the ABOUT tab.
check back here often for inspiration of the erotic (and nsfw) kind. nin’s primary goal is not to titillate, but if it is provocative and well written/produced, this is a common side effect. this does not mean that we overlook the raunchy. in fact, it might be our favorite.
finally, nin is run by queers, and is devoted to representing all sexualities, gender expressions and ethnicities in our publication. you are encouraged to submit if you are non-native, gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, queer, genderqueer, transgender and/or a person of color.
we look forward to receiving your work.
COMMUNITY: We encourage people of color of all backgrounds to submit to nin and other publications, as we need more records of more expressions of sexuality and gender from POC around the world—in OUR voices. xo

Dari Project is a volunteer-led, grassroots organization that develops resources to increase awareness and acceptance of LGBTQ people of Korean descent in Korean American communities.
Dari Project seeks to build bridges among Korean American families, social networks, institutions and faith communities by documenting and sharing the life stories of LGBTQ Koreans.
Since its inception in 2006, the Dari Project leadership has dreamed of publishing the first collection of personal narratives of LGBTQ Koreans as a bilingual resource for LGBTQ Koreans and their friends and families, and they’re so close to making this dream a reality!
They’ve solicited 27 stories from members of their community, which represent a wide range of experiences, including homo/bi/transphobia in Korean American communities, coming out as an LGBTQ person, building relationships with family, and membership in faith communities.
This publication is designed to provide young Korean Americans coming into LGBTQ identities with stories in which they can see their lives reflected and as a resource for Korean American families coming to terms with having LGBTQ children.
Thanks to some friends and supporters they’ve been able to get started, but they need your help to publish this collection as a bilingual print resource for our community.
Your generous contributions will help edit, translate, design, and print their stories as a book.
If they can make their goal of $7000, it will help make this book available for FREE to your friends, families, communities, and people you care about.
Your generous contributions will go towards:
- Full Korean and English translation services
- Editing Korean and English Stories
- Publication Design
- Publication Printing
- Dari Project Marketing
