Here's how you can be a part of Aotearotica:



We are after clever, modern and stylish erotica and work exploring sex, sexuality or gender expression, with a preference for a distinct New Zealand flavour. We will consider previously unpublished poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, art and graphic narratives. Your work should be no longer than 3000 words in total.

Contributors receive koha of NZD$50, regardless of form, and a copy of the journal they appear in. While we ask for right of first publication and a brief period of exclusivity, copyright is retained by the contributor.
