Do you love writing steamy, erotic poems? Join the NY Literary Magazine’s Hottest Erotic Poetry of the Year contest!

Feel free to write about sexual experiences and wild fantasies without inhibitions. You may describe your fantasies as explicitly as your sexy mind desires, or hint at lovemaking using beautiful metaphors.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transexual poems are welcome as well.

The sexiest, the naughtiest, and the most creative poems will win an award and be published in our upcoming “FLAMES” anthology!

This is a free-to-enter international poetry competition open to talented writers of any age and nationality. You can use a pen name if you’re shy to reveal your identity.

Contest start date: October 1st, 2016
Contest end date: April 1st, 2017

You may submit up to 10 poems for consideration. Make sure to check your spelling and grammar before submitting your poems. Any poems with spelling mistakes shall be trashed.
Please submit each poem as a separate form submission!

This poetry contest is now closed. We thank everyone for their submissions!
