Submit Your Story

Submit Your Story

Anyone can submit their story made with our writing tool to be published in the Sana Stories app

How to submit a story:

  • Write a story with the Sana Writing Tool and download it as a .sana file.
  • Fill out this form, attach the .sana file and send it.
  • Wait to see your story appear in the Sana Stories app!

Guidelines:

  • The story needs to be an original story written by you.
  • The story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. It needs to include at least one choice between two different scenes. It needs to be at least 5000 words long.
  • We accept stories from all over the world, as long as they’re written in English.
  • The submission needs to include a cover image.
  • We reserve the right not to publish stories that do not meet these requirements.
  • What we want to see:
    a. Stories with a strong central romance plot between two or more characters. We live for those delicious character arcs and sizzling chemistry. 
    b. Diverse stories with characters from all kinds of backgrounds. We are LGBT+ friendly, and also appreciate more traditional straight romances.
    c. Erotic stories. We do prefer light erotica with an emphasis on emotions over straight-up porn, but both are welcome.
    d. Coherent and complete narratives without continuity errors. Readers should experience a full story no matter which choices they make.
    e. Well-written and clearly formatted text without typos or spelling mistakes.
  • What we don’t want to see:
    a. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or any other kind of discrimination or abuse aimed at a vulnerable group of people.
    b. Sexual abuse of any kind, such as depictions of rape or non-consensual sexual acts.
    c. Gratuitous graphic violence without a very good reason strongly rooted in the plot of your story. Please consider carefully if the gory details are really necessary.
    d. Illegal content, such as sexual acts towards minors or bestiality. We cannot publish any illegal content due to platform rules.
