Submit Your Story
Become a BedPost or (un)Spoken performer! We are always looking for new voices—especially if stories like yours too often go untold. BedPost Confessions is an ALL-INCLUSIVE enterprise: we welcome storytellers of all genders, races, and sexualities.

We most commonly feature readings of personal narrative, memoir, poetry, and fiction.
We have also given a platform to:
• Standup comics

• Burlesque troops
• Art and history lectures
• Video clips
• How-to and educational presentations
• Short theater performances and stage readings
Anything else you can think of is fair game, too!

The Review Process
Please allow two weeks for us to assess and respond.

Below are more details about what we’re looking to feature in each show.
More about submitting to BedPost Confessions
We encourage you to submit sexually-themed stories. Your story doesn't need to be "erotic" (although we love well-crafted erotica), but it should pertain positively to sex and sexuality. Consider telling your story from a political, humorous, creative, feminist, or educational perspective. We want stories that fit our mission of ethics, education, and entertainment around sex, sexuality, and gender.
More about submitting to (un)Spoken
UnSpoken is an outlet for the harder to share stories on topics such as birth, death, aging, mental illness, addiction and overall coming to terms with your truth. Past UnSpoken themes include: Loss and Gain, Betrayed, Coming Together and Breaking Apart and Take Care. The show is themed around submissions; so don't want to hear from us. We want to hear from you. Consider telling your story from a political, humorous, creative, feminist, or educational perspective. Join us and share what is unspoken for you.
