The Writers Coffee Shop presents the Secret Slash Contest! What happens when nosy neighbors, prying parents, and curious coworkers aren't looking? From tender to angsty to seductive, from secret trysts to unspoken of attraction, from emotional freedom to forbidden desires...
We're looking for your best same-gender pairings and the secrets they keep behind closed doors!
This category is ideally for authors age 17 and under, but stories suitable for younger readers, though written by adults, may be submitted in this category. Decaf stories must be rated E or T.
This category is for authors 18 years and older. Lemons welcome!
- Entries can be canon, all-human, or alternate universe and may be for any fandom featured on TWCS Library. Fanfiction, original fiction, and crossovers are welcome.
- All entries must be one-shots, wholly original, and previously unpublished. No outtakes of or additions to other posted stories.
- During the contest, authors may not state or imply that a story will be continued later, and no entries may be expanded until after winners are announced.
- All entries must be beta'd, rated correctly, and have the appropriate warnings. No non-consent, dubious consent, or abuse.
- Lemons are lovely, but not required. A little UST never hurt anyone...right?
- All entries must be at least 3000 words in length, not including heading or author's notes. No maximum word count.
- Collaborations welcome.
- Three entries max. per author (this includes collaborations).
- Entries must be posted on the TWCS Library using the Respond to Challenge feature.
- Entries will be accepted from Tuesday, March 1st at 00:01 EST through Thursday, March 31st at 11:59 pm EST.
- All entries must be in compliance with TWCS Library rules.
- Voting will take place from Saturday, April 2nd through Saturday April 9th. Winners will be announced on Sunday April 10th.
- Public vote will determine winners in Decaf and Espresso categories. First place winners in each category will receive a banner, a TWCS coffee mug, a listing in TWCS Hall of Fame, and bragging rights. Second and third place winners, determined by popular vote in each category, will receive a banner and bragging rights.
- Barista's Choice for Espresso and Decaf entries will be TWCS staff choice. The Barista's Choice winners in each category will receive a banner, a listing in TWCS Hall of Fame, and bragging rights.
