About the Event
Kink.com and Green Apple Books are partnering for an exclusive launch party for a new short fiction anthology, KINK. Edited by R.O. Kwon and Garth Greenwell, KINK brings together 15 acclaimed writers and their stories of power, pain, fetish and desire.
This groundbreaking event goes one step further, tying readings by celebrated authors to live demonstrations and conversations with some of the BDSM community’s most respected voices.
Join us as authors and kinksters converge to explore the fact and the fiction in this powerful collection. Featured authors include Vanessa Clark, Garth Greenwell, and R.O. Kwon
KINK is a dynamic anthology of literary fiction that opens an imaginative door into the world of desire. The stories within this collection portray love, desire, BDSM, and sexual kinks in all their glory with a bold new vision. They explore bondage, power-play, and submissive-dominant relationships; we are taken to private estates, therapists’ offices, underground sex clubs, and even a sex theater in early-20th century Paris. While there are whips and chains, sure, the true power of these stories lies in their beautiful, moving dispatches from across the sexual spectrum of interest and desires, as portrayed by some of today’s most exciting writers, including: Callum Angus, Alexander Chee, Vanessa Clark, Melissa Febos, Kim Fu, Roxane Gay, Cara Hoffman, Zeyn Joukhadar, Chris Kraus, Carmen Maria Machado, Peter Mountford, Larissa Pham, and Brandon Taylor, with Garth Greenwell and R.O. Kwon as editors.
