Six years have passed since the publication of Lambda Literary Award finalist Dear John, I Love Jane: Women Write about Leaving Men for Women, a groundbreaking exploration of sexual fluidity through intimate, firsthand stories. This anthology remains a crucial resource for women who find themselves deliciously (and distressingly) floundering in the knowledge that although they have always identified as straight, they are now madly in love with another woman. It’s time to update, extend, broaden, and strengthen the conversation in the sequel. Tell us your story. For more information, to go cleispress.com/blog/call-for-submissions-janeland/
