Call for Submissions: Erotic Stories of Hauntings | Due August 5 - (Expired)

Calls for Submissions For Writers

This submission call is now closed. You can find calls that are still accepting contributions at Calls for Submissions.


Mofo Pubs wants previously unpublished erotic stories of hauntings—literal or figurative. Pieces should tell a story, not simply be an excuse for a sex scene.

Multiple and simultaneous submissions are fine. Stories should be 1,000 to 5,000 words. Pays 1¢/word.

From the original call:

While fantastical and spooky elements are welcome, we suggest writers familiarize themselves with the full dictionary definition of “haunt” and think outside the box. For this anthology we aren’t just looking for ghosts, ghouls, and other monsters. We want to feel something that is persistently there. Something that twists the mind, invades our waking thoughts, disturbs our sleep. The characters must be haunted or haunting.

The sex needs to be raw, passionate, hot, and at the story’s centre. Four-letter words are neither required nor discouraged, although we have a preference for graphic lust conveyed through beautiful prose.

No hard requirements in terms of secondary genres. This theme lends itself well to speculative genres—but think sexy not scary.

I do not knowingly announce submission calls by publishers who do not fulfill their contractual obligations. However, readers are responsible for conducting their own due diligence.
