Submit Your Story

Have you written an interactive story? Great!

Here's how you can submit it to be self-published in the Sana app

  • 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!

We’re building a more streamlined self-publishing system, so that in the future you can just press a button to publish your story. But for now, here’s a link to the form again as a nice, friendly button:

Guidelines we'd like you to follow

  • 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:

  • Stories with a strong central romance plot between two or more characters. We live for those delicious character arcs and sizzling chemistry.

  • Diverse stories with characters from all kinds of backgrounds. We are LGBT+ friendly, and also appreciate more traditional straight romances.

  • Erotic stories. We do prefer light erotica with an emphasis on emotions over straight-up porn, but both are welcome.

  • Coherent and complete narratives without continuity errors. Readers should experience a full story no matter which choices they make.

  • Well-written and clearly formatted text without typos or spelling mistakes.

  • What we don’t want to see:

    • Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or any other kind of discrimination or abuse aimed at a vulnerable group of people.

    • Sexual abuse of any kind, such as depictions of rape or non-consensual sexual acts.

    • 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.

    • Illegal content, such as sexual acts towards minors or bestiality. We cannot publish any illegal content due to platform rules.
