Throats to the Sky submission guidelines

web site

Throats to the Sky means looking up—being aware of, and alive in, the world around us. It represents freedom from ego and the freedom, also, to enjoy sex. Throats to the Sky is an arched spine, head thrown back orgasm on a nice spring day.

Throats to the Sky strives to inspire all humans to own their sexualities and have pride. We love erotic (or just plain slutty!) work but we’re also looking for stories from sexual minorities and survivors of sexual abuse. We believe that telling your story can be an invaluable healing tool and we’d be honored to share it.

While there is no such thing as too much sex in a piece, sex isn’t a requirement. A reminder to love ourselves and each other is always enough.

Submissions for our first issue (coming Summer 2020) are open now!

We are looking for previously unpublished poetry, flash fiction and non-fiction, and visual art of all mediums. Simultaneous submissions are accepted. If your piece finds a home elsewhere, please let us know.
  • Submit 3-5 pieces at a time 
  • Flash fiction and non-fiction should not exceed 1000 words
  • Format must be .doc, .docx., or .pdf
Send all submissions to throatstothesky@gmail.com in a single document. Please add a cover letter including a brief, third-person bio.

While we hope to eventually offer payment for work, we’re currently are only able to offer exposure to your craft. Include any relevant social media handles in your bio.

We aim to respond to all submissions within one month.
