Eroticon Anthology 2019 – “Discovery” – call for submissions

It’s that time again! Submissions are now open for the Eroticon Anthology 2019 – This is your chance to make sure you leave the 2019 conference with your work published alongside that of other amazing speakers and attendees! 

The Eroticon Anthology aims to celebrate and promote some of the fantastic writers who attend Eroticon every year. In 2017 the theme was Identity and in 2018 we had Truth, both featured incredible fictional and non-fictional stories and essays from sex toy reviewers, bloggers, erotic authors, and more.

This year we are changing things ever-so slightly in that we will be accepting submissions from anyone who attended Eroticon 2018 and/or has a ticket for 2019 – whether a speaker or a delegate (see submission details below)  – it’s a great chance to showcase the breadth and quality of creative work people who attend Eroticon produce, and it means that anyone who attends can make sure they leave the conference as a published writer!

Theme of Eroticon anthology 2019

This year we decided to let you pick the word and after a week of voting the word that reigned supreme was Discovery.

‘Discovery’ – this could be anything from discoveries you have made through your writing or blogging, to personal stories based on a discovery, or erotica that intertwines personal discoveries with fiction. We’re looking for short fiction and non-fiction erotic stories, personal essays, poetry and illustrations.

The book will go on sale during Eroticon weekend and 60% of net royalties will be split equally between contributors on an ongoing basis. You do not need to have any previously published works – if you’re new to erotic writing then your submission – and attendance at Eroticon – could be your first steps into sex or erotic writing.

    I’d really like to submit a piece but I am unable to attend the conference. Would I be able to submit if I buy a Help Others Attend ticket and/or waive rights to royalties?

      Hi N

      Sadly we can’t do that as that would involve someone who has paid to attend the conference not getting into the anthology. The aim of the Eroticon anthology is to give attendees the opportunity to be published and for many of them it is their first experience of doing so. You might want to check out Resonance Press though as they often have open calls for work

    If you’re a fiction writer, please do check out – we have around 4-6 calls per year and love to publish both new and more experienced writers.

    Hi Anna.

    I’ve finished my “Discovery” anthology submission.

    It’s 2,980 words.

    Just letting you know it’s on the way. I’ve had it beta-read and made some changes based on feedback, and I’m going to read it again in the morning. Then I’ll send it, if it still feels good.

    I hope you’ve got enough material to publish!
