The world will read your sex stories
It’s my birthday. This blog is now one year old. One spin around the sun since the day I decided to join the world of erotic writers.
I’ve found it an exciting voyage. I’ve written my own stories, but more than that I have entered a world of thrilling writers, the sort of people who write to excite, who write from the heart and well, from other places.
Writers full of energy and talent, vision and feelings. The best are simply sublime.
Writers with a diversity of views, life experiences, talents, and interests.
I must have done something good
A few days ago, I was approached with an offer to be part of a brilliant new venture. There’s a new group aiming to publish great writing on the Medium platform.
Cre8ive Media is a collaborative of digital influencers from a variety of social media platforms. Our goal is to better understand how trends and social media shape our society. We use this data to influence the distribution of content that engages and enriches readers.
They offered me a position as sex editor. Put simply, I will be running a Medium publication within the Cre8ive group, working with sex and erotica writers who are accepted into our promotion platform.
Each month we’ll be taking twelve articles across a range of fields, promoting them heavily on social media to the tune of millions of views, and analysing the data coming back to improve again and again.
Medium is a platform linking writers and readers. It’s an elegant system that rewards both. Readers get an endless stream of exactly the sort of stories that interest them. Writers get their stories read by those who want to read them, and they get paid for every read.
It’s no secret that the best stories on Medium earn thousands of dollars. That amount is based entirely on the number of readers. There’s no dickering with agents and editors about how much you receive. It’s based on results. More readers = more money.
Being partnered with a group who will promote your stories widely and aggressively guarantees more readers.
How do I get into this?
I’m glad you asked. Cre8ive Media have prepared information packs. Read through them:
- A Call for Writers on The Medium Platform. Don’t be Shy
- A Concise Guide for Cre8tive Submissions
- Cre8tive Media’s Categories for Medium Writer’s Submissions
- Cre8tive’s Cohort, Information and Resources for Our Writers
- How Does Cre8tive Media’s Collaborative Work?
There are a string of useful articles as well, giving resources for writers, information about social media, how to prepare your story, and so on. Go here, look at the articles on offer, read whatever looks interesting.
Don’t worry too much about the details. If we like your story, we’ll work with you to get everything just right.
If you aren’t on Medium already, go ahead and make an account. It’s free, and it only takes a minute. Here’s a good guide on how it works.
To earn money from writing, you need to join the Medium Partner Program. That’s basically a matter of linking a bank account and filling in some tax details. Again, it’s free.
An optional step, but one I highly recommend, is to become a paid member. This costs $5 a month or $50 a year, but I easily cover that amount with what I earn from my writing. Every single month has been a profit for me, and it is steadily growing.
The advantages of becoming a paid member are that you can read everything behind the paywall. With a free account, you can access three of these stories a month. There are ways around this, mainly by going through Twitter which is partnered with Medium, but it’s extra hassle.
Not every story on Medium is behind the paywall, and you can have a perfectly satisfactory experience for free. But it’s not the best experience.
Short and sweet. If we accept one of your stories, you’ll make enough to pay for a year’s paid membership. At least.
Last step is to subscribe to Cre8tive. You can do that by following the publication from the footer on any one of our stories.
So where does Britni Pepper come in?
I do write erotica for Amazon’s Kindle platform, but I’ve found that I enjoy reading and reviewing good writing more. As many of my readers will know, I will often exhaustively comb through a story looking for typos and errors in grammar, sending a private list of what I’ve found. On the Kindle platform, it’s easy to submit a revised version with mistakes corrected.
My writing and my editing attracted the attention of the Cre8ive team, they offered me an editor position, and well, here I am, looking to help out some of the writers I know gain exposure and income.
Cre8ive aren’t looking for big name writers. Unknown, low profile, new writers, please. If you are already making serious money from your writing, good on you, but you aren’t the right fit for us.
Good writers, new writers, aspiring writers. Writers with a bit of edge and excitement. Sex writers, by the nature of the topic, are already a little out of the mainstream. Erotica is fine. No pornography, please.
We do not allow pornographic images or videos. We do allow erotic writing and non-graphic erotic images.—Medium general rules
We do not allow gratuitously graphic or disturbing media, even if it’s not pornographic.
We do not allow content promoting the sexual or violent exploitation of minors, including the sexualization of fictional minors.
I’m looking for articles in the following categories:
- Sex news, trends, current events
- Toys and products
- Kink, fetishes, BDSM stories
- Online sex activities
Each month we’ll select two stories. One for the girls, one for the guys. We’ll work with the writers to get them into the best shape, we’ll promote them, we’ll keep them up for six months. The writers get to keep all of the Medium income for their stories.
I hope that my regular readers – and those whose writing I enjoy most – will leap with excitement at the chance.
If this is something you’d like to be a part of, just create an account on Medium, and subscribe to Cre8tive. We’ll be in touch soon.
