Many Hands: An Anthology of Polyamorous Erotica

Duck Prints Press is thrilled to announce our next anthology—our first erotica collection!—featuring tropey polyamorous erotica! This collection will feature relationships, casual and serious, between 3 or more partners engaging in deliciously sexy times together, with an emphasis on explicit poly smut stories that integrate popular fanfiction tropes (even though the stories will be original fiction)! We’ve selected thirty of our favorite tropes to help guide your thinking, from “5 + 1 thing” fics to swingers.

This anthology will feature up to 17 stories. All the stories must include these three elements:

  1. Explicit erotic content.
  2. Polyamory: there must be at least 3 people involved in the erotic part of the story.
  3. Tropes. We’ve compiled a list of thirty of our favorite tropes. You must integrate at least one of these tropes in your story, though we’d recommend incorporating more than one.

Applications for this anthology are open from May 20th to June 5th, 2023!
