Literary work

As a writer, she prefers a short, effective, often shocking story, and in her novels she thematizes the position of women in the world, issues of identity, family relationships and love, not hesitating to write openly about erotica, humorously breaking taboos and exposing prejudices.[5] A literary portrait of Ljubica Arsić was also published in the "One to One" collection of the Službeni glasnik publishing house in Belgrade.[6]
