That’s right! We are holding a Writing Contest during the month of August. So, get your pencils ready, round up your beta-readers, and get cracking on a short story with a steam punk theme and you might just win a $50 Amazon gift card as well as the chance to see your work included in one of our short story anthologies!

The rules are fairly simple: write and submit a story with a steam punk theme and setting. We will have categories for M/M pairings, F/F pairings, and M/F pairings as well as a category for “no romance.” Once your story is finished and you’ve made all the tweaks to it you think it needs, email it to us as an attachment (.docx, .rtf, .pdf, and .doc only, please). In the body of your email, please include your legal first and last name, your postal address, the category you’re entering, your pen name (if you have one) and the title of your story. Also, be sure to label the subject line “Steampunk Contest Entry” so we know what you’re sending. Stories should be at least 2,500 words and no more than 30,000.

The submission period will begin August 1, 2013 and end August 31, 2013. You can read the full rules and conditions here.
Best get cracking immediately! We’re looking forward to reading what you’ve got!
