“Summer's filled with breaking the rules, standing apart, ignoring your head, and following your heart.” –anonymous


And that is the theme of our contest. Tell us all about the “Summer It All Began” for your Twi-slash couple.

What's better than winning a writing contest? Winning an anonymous writing contest!

We've leveled the playing field - so let your words speak for themselves.

Here are the rules:

This is a Twilight-themed contest.

Your story must be a new one-shot, NOT an outtake or continuation of another story. We want the story no one has seen yet. Continuations of your entry/entries will NOT be permitted until winners have been announced.

The One Shot must be between 3,000 and 12,000 words not including the contest heading, which must be included in the document.

ONLY SLASH/ FEMMESLASH pairings.

Any Rating is allowed, and lemons are not necessary, but certainly welcomed.

Due to the nature of the prizes, and US law governing awards with monetary value, all participants must be at least 18 years of age. We need to keep things legal if we ever want the opportunity to do that again.

This is an anonymous contest: you may tell people you entered, however you may not reveal what story is actually yours. Any pimping of one particular story will be questioned. The point is to promote ALL the entries.

Limit of two entries per author /penname. Due to the nature of the awards, no collaborations are being accepted for this contest.

Anyone affiliated with the contest is ineligible to enter.

Rape, incest, pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia or other particularly icky stuff are strictly prohibited, with the exception of vampires and shape-shifting wolves.

All stories must be beta’d and will be validated. No author notes will be allowed on the submission. Save the thanks for your beta when you can post it on your profile.

If you don't have a beta, we suggest sending the story to Project Team Beta: www(DOT)projectteambeta(DOT)com. However, they do take time, so you will need to get the story to them early.

Submissions should be sent to: summer(DOT)it(DOT)began@gmail(DOT)com.

We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not meet the rules.
