Call for Submissions – Writers' Contest

All unpublished writers are invited to enter their short romance stories in the Romantic Shorts “New Year New Story” Writers’ competition.

Announced today, the deadline for submissions is Thursday, March 31st, 2011.

We’re looking for contemporary, historical, fantasy (no vampires/werewolves), mystery and comedy based plots, and all stories must center around a hero/heroine romance. This is an open-themed competition. Story themes should be generic and not tied to any holiday type setting. Otherwise, place and time is completely open to the author’s preference. Publication of selected entries is scheduled for summer 2011. Type of romance is also open – chaste and innocent stories, hot and steamy plots, and everything in between are welcome.

Check out www.RomanticShorts.com for official and complete details.

Looking for Writers

We need some writers! A whole lot of writers.

Romantic Shorts is in need of 30-60 new, unpublished writers who are prepared to produce one or more stories for our new website.

We’re looking for quality romantic short stories, of about 4500-6000 words. Original story ideas, characters, and settings will be key. And fun, moving, surprising plots are a bonus. Stories must stand alone; they cannot be an excerpt from a longer piece. Your submission will be creative, unique, and polished. New, unpublished authors only. No agents.

Query with 100-word synopsis and writing sample, or with first 1,000 words by e-mail.  Or watch for upcoming Writers’ Competition announcements. Our next competition is scheduled to be announced January 4th, 2011.

Visit our website at www.romanticshorts.com for submission details.

For now, we are looking for fairly mainstream situations. Although varying degrees of explicitness are welcome. We do intend to branch out to a wide genre variety in the future.

This is a new and developing website. Start your writing career; come grow with us from the beginning.
