Better Sex Fiction Contest Update & Fall Contest Details

Reading the blog, I see the date for letters to go out (see note below) to people who submitted stores has passed, but I haven't heard anything regarding my submissions. I entered three stories prior to the release form being a part of the application process--I think when I entered it was something you would send to us.

I also understand that you have other contests lined up, or rather, that you had enough submissions for more than one.

thanks for your time, making a great website, and offering the contest in the first place.


MB is right we are way behind on notification. The Better Sex Erotic Fiction Contest for Summer is over and full. We have not been able to get notes out to everyone due to the crush of entries and other duties. We received enough great stories to fill 3 contests and will be contact authors about our Fall Better Sex Erotic Fiction Contest as soon we se see daylight (hopefully in the next few weeks).

Other Publications Rule = Relaxed
We will relax this rule and allow stories submitted to us to be published on other web sites and remain eligible for the Better Sex Fall Erotic Fiction Contest.

Fall Contest Deadline = November 1st
We will manage the Better Sex Fall Erotic Fiction Contest differently. Instead of using rolling admissions, we've set a deadline of November 1st for story submissions. This will allow us to read all submissions before awarding publication slots.

Better Sex Fall Contest Slots
We think there will be about 40 publication slots for the Better Sex Fall Erotic Fiction Contest. The contest will extend through January with semi-finals in February (at least that is the plan now).

Limited Release
Our Limited Release will not change, so, if you would like to expedite your entry, please use the link above to review the release, sign and fax to 919.732.5393, sign, scan and email to msmith @ BetterSex . com or mail to Sinclair Institute, Attn: Fiction Contest, West Campus, 402 Millstone Drive, Hillsborough, NC 27278.
