Recruitment Now Open for “Many Hands: An Anthology of Polyamorous Erotica”

HOWDY, FANDOM AUTHORS! We’re Duck Prints Press, the indie press run by fandom folks to publish original works by fandom folks, and we are thrilled to announce that, for the first time in months, we are once again open for applications!

This time, we’re recruiting fanauthors to contribute to our FIRST EVER erotica anthology: Many Hands: An Anthology of Polyamorous Erotica. We’re looking for up to 17 authors to write all-new, completely original, never-before-shared stories ranging from 5,000 to 7,500 words, featuring people in polyamorous relationships in tropey, erotic situations. We’re paying a minimum of $75 per story (and we’ll strive to increase that amount through crowdfunding). All the smut must include at least 3 entities engaging in sexy times, and we’ve compiled a list of 30 of our favorite tropes – all stories must include AT LEAST ONE of the tropes on our list!

Interested? Yay! We’re glad we’ve caught your attention! We are open to all fanauthors over the age of 18 who have posted at least 3 separate works and a minimum of 10,000 words of fanfiction. If that describes you, and you saw “polyamorous” and “erotica” and “tropey” and went “OMG SIGN ME UP” then we encourage you to use these links to read everything you need to know about applying!

Rules and Guidelines



Applications close June 5th, 2023, so don’t miss this chance to join us! We will probably not be opening public applications to work with Duck Prints Press again until early 2024 (though don’t quote us on that, we’re not 100% sure about how the fall is going to shake out. 😀 )


(are you a returning author – who has already worked with us on an anthology story and/or other story? you can apply using THIS FORM!)

Interested but have some questions? Please drop us an ask on Tumblr or e-mail us at, we’d be happy to give you all the deets!
