Flights of Fancy Contest

Torquere Press presents: Flights of Fancy contest.

The beginning of spring is just a breath of fresh air after the long, dark days of winter. It's a time when the imagination soars, and when anything seems possible.To honor that giddy change of seasons, Torquere Press presents the Flights of Fancy short story contest. That's right, clear out the winter cobwebs and let your mind go places you've never dreamed. Then write it down and send it to us in the form of a gay or lesbian erotic short story, of 1000-5000 words. You can interpret the theme however you like, just surprise us, make us laugh, make us cry, or make us hot.

Deadline for submissions Is February 28, 2006. Prizes are $50.00 for first place, $35.00 for second place, and 25.00 for third place. Honorable mentions may be chosen at the discretion of the judges. Winners will be announced March 15, 2006. Please see rules and regulations for restrictions.

Stories should be submitted in the body of an email and include the author's name, contact information, a statement of legal age and acknowledge that the story is their own, original work to which they own the rights, sent to writingcontest@torquerepress.com. (Or you can use our handy entry form at our website, www.torquerepress.com)

Each submission should contain your name, full contact information, a statement of age (must be 18 or over to enter) and your story as an inline email.
