For The Girls 3rd Birthday Fiction Competition

To celebrate our 3rd birthday, For The Girls is conducting another erotic fiction competition. Our aim is to uncover more great examples of sexy writing created expressly for women. This year we have a cunnilingus theme.

The competition will run throughout June and July and is open to FTG members as well as members of the public. Both professional writers and amateur wordsmiths are welcome to enter.

Competition Rules:

1. Stories should be a maximum of 2000 words in length.

2. Stories can cover any topic, however it must be erotic in nature, sex positive and be written expressly for female readers.

3. Any sex in these stories must feature at least one act of cunnilingus.

4. We will not accept stories that feature any of the following themes or acts: non-consensual sex, bestiality, underage sex, incest, violent or abusive sex, or anything where women are treated without respect.

5. We will not accept stories if the spelling or punctuation are substandard.

6. Stories should be original and previously unpublished.

7. You may use a pseudonym or penname if you wish, however we also need to know your real name for the purposes of the competition.

8. You must be aged 18 or over to enter.

9. All stories must have a title.

10. You may submit a maximum of three stories.

The judges will be looking for high quality writing, original ideas, intriguing characters and situations and - of course - steamy sex scenes. Don't just send blow-by-blow descriptions of sex. Talking can be just as exciting as doing. Remember that your story is aimed at a female audience.

If your story is a winner it will be published on the For The Girls website.

Rights to the three winning stories shall be exclusive to For The Girls for six months, after which For The Girls retains the non-exclusive right to archive the stories on the site indefinitely.
