Erotica Submission Opportunities | December 2020
Editor’s note: We’d like to welcome Calliope (they/them) as a regular contributor. They will share erotic writing submission opportunities on a regular basis to help erotic writers find places to submit their work. Calliope has written for Smutlancers in the past, and we’re so glad to welcome them in this capacity!
Whether you have some pieces waiting to send out or are looking for a publication with a theme to spark a story, I’ve rounded up places eager for your writing.
Make sure to read both submission guidelines and terms and conditions closely. Many publications have specific guidelines or requirements for stories along with things like formatting, information from you, and more. While reading the terms and conditions can seem tedious but it’s important to understand what a publication is going to do with your work.
