Smutathon is now in its third year!
Started in 2017, it is an annual fundraising erotic writing challenge that was started by sex blogger extraordinaire, Amy from Coffee and Kink.
At each event, a group of intrepid sex writers – bloggers, erotica authors, sex educators and more – would get together and write like mad things, each with their own personal challenge of words to complete, stories to write or chapters to finish. All the stories, essays and photographs were published during the challenge and we were sponsored for our efforts.
Each Smutathon lasts for 12 hours – how much could you write?
It is fun and frantic and hot and exhilarating and one of the highlights of the erotic writing year!
In 2018, the charity was changed to Abortion Support Network and we raised £1100 when eight writers all congregated in a small AirBnB in Chester to write as much as we could in 12 hours, which ended up as over 10,000 words in 48 posts.
Excitingly, plans for Smutathon 2019 are in full swing!
We are taking our show across the Atlantic with an international Smutathon gathering in Montreal, as well as other writers joining us remotely around the world and are supporting a US-based abortion charity – the National Network of Abortion Funds. They do invaluable work, both funding abortions but also in help to reduce all barriers to accessing abortions – from travel to childcare and everything in between.
Sound like fun? Why not get involved too!
If you write sex and erotica, or would like to, check out how get involved and we can’t wait to hear from you!
