Submission Guidelines 2013

Hooray, epeolatarians! We’re in our third year, I just had my second child this past April, and now I’m about to turn 35! What does that mean for you? The worst prizes ever to come out of a writing contest, most likely (have you ever tried to knit with a colicky baby?), but it means it’s another chance to flex your bulging, buxom, … wait. What’s the theme?

“Sexy, Not Sexy” or “This Isn’t Romance” or “I’m Not in Love”

Inspired by a list produced by the Calgary Association of the Romance Writers of America (CARWA?), you’re to take 15 words from their collection of the sexiest* words and write a 600 word short story.

The catch? It can’t be sexy. No romance, no erotica, no sensual situations. Yep. 15 steamy words, without the salacious story.

Send entries to ravendemers@gmail.com by the deadline, complete with any pseudonym and personal or professional link you wish to use. Please put 2013 EPEOLATRY SUBMISSION in the subject line.

*Please note, the judge quibbles over several of the words deemed sexiest, as some require context, and some, like jealousy, aren’t sexy at all.
