Group Rules

:bulletgreen: This is a literature group for romance writers. Submissions must be romance themed, any submissions that do not highlight the group's focus will be declined.

:bulletblue: This is a literature group, we do not accept purely visual work ("visual"/found poetry is still fine).

:bulletred: There is a limit of two submissions a day.

:bulletpurple: The Featured folder will only be used for submissions admins choose entirely on the basis of merit and whim.

:bulletblue: Individual chapters are allowed as long as that chapter is romance themed, simply containing characters that are in a relationship is not enough to qualify on its own.

:bulletred: If you have any questions about the rules or are unclear as to why your submission was declined you may contact the group and we will do our best to help.

:bulletblack: Please visit the folder in our gallery you intend to submit to beforehand!  There's a helpful description inside each one to help you submit to the right place.

:bulletpink: Mark works as Mature Content when appropriate.  Anything marked should be submitted to the Mature Content folder regardless of its genre.

Why was my work denied?
Chances are you were not following the rules. If you feel the rejection was unjustified, we do accept a :note: if you wish to discuss the matter.

:heart: End of Summer Romance Lit Contest - Winners :heart:

Clearly I need some practice at this contest-hosting thing...despite offering six prizes over two categories, we only ever received a single entry!  On the other hand, that did make the judging a lot less stressful... ;P

Since I've got plenty of spare room, I'll go ahead and feature some more of their work:

Daydream Romance. ( If I could paint. )If I could paint, I would paint him...
His deep, blue eyes, his sleek hips, his dazzling smile & sweet, tender lips.
Which way would I draw his hair? So many styles, to choose just one is not fair.
His cute little tummy, hands & his feet, his legs covered by a bright, white sheet.
I would sketch him out, the way that puts me in a trance, my little daydream romance.
If I could paint, I would do it for him...
For the way that he makes me feel, the closest I have come to something real.
For his dreamy voice that makes me lose sight, of all fears I had that night.
For the protection that his thought offers me, I should owe him something.
He would never give me a second glance, but he's my dear daydream romance.
If I could paint, I would immortalize him...
The way he is immortal in my fantasies, as I toss & turn begging for him to touch me.
The way he is immortal in my reassuring dreams, more real than what it seems.
The way he is immortal on the big screen, while I just ad
       YouYou, my perfect.
You, my precious.
You, my darling.
You, my brightest light.
You, my deepest darkness.
You, my air.
You, my sun.
You, my moon.
You, my greatest dream.
You, my worst nightmare.
You, my everything.
You, you know who you are.
Be mine?
       Broken LettersDear John,
   Do you remember the games we used to play? Choosing a name for one another, a new way to see ourselves & each other. It has been so long since we played.
   I know that war is not something to put anyone into a gaming mood, but perhaps you could forgive me, should I seem childish.
   John, please, humor me & play on this game, won't you?
   Your's forever ~ Charlotte.
Dear Sea,
   Your waves, crashing upon my ship, they destroy me. My mighty ship, my fortress, my prison. It is the only thing saving me from drowning, drowning in your love that washes along the tides of my heart.
   I pray that a rogue wave spirals me out of control, and allows me to sink to the depths of your very being, so that I may lay peacefully at the bottom for eternity.
   Love, John.
Dear Rain,
   Blasted snow, I hate it with every fiber of my being. If only this snow would set me free, let loose it's g

Thanks again to DarkLover33 for the points donation that helped make this contest possible!

I'll hang on to the rest of the points I'd set aside for prizes until I think of some new, killer, cannot-fail contest idea...maybe we'll get two entries next time!  Optimistic

:heart: End of Summer Romance Lit Contest :heart:

Some of us are already heading back to school, others are trying to squeeze the most out of the season before the dim months settle over us.  Let's capture the feeling of summer and the passions that can emerge when time is short!  To plant some seeds, entries will need to somehow incorporate each of the three elements below: ice cream, sunglasses and a fast-approaching date.

  • Submissions open September 2nd, 2015 and close September 22, 2015 11:59 PM UTC
  • Judging begins September 23
  • Prizes will be awarded by the end of September, unless we get a huge number of entries...which would be awesome, but in which case I will apologize and it will take longer.

  • Theme
  • This should go without saying, but I'll say it anyway: Romance and Summer
  • All of the three elements referenced above: ice cream, sunglasses and a fast-approaching date
  • Length/Style
  • Poetry - minimum 50 words, maximum 500 words
  • Prose - minimum 300 words, maximum 3000 words
  • Fan-fiction is allowed, but the piece must stand on its own merits even if readers aren't familiar with the fandom!
  • No Mature Content this time, let's start slow ;P
  • Judging Criteria
  • Originality
  • Technique (spelling counts, kids!)
  • Feels

Submission Rules:
  • New work, created for this contest only
  • Include a link to this journal in the author's comment of your entry
  • Submit your entry to the Summer Romance Contest 2015 gallery
  • As with all submissions to RomanceforEveryone, contest entry deviations must be categorized Romance! This is my SRS face!  ಠ_ಠ
  • Only submit one entry per style category.  You may submit separate poetry and prose entries if you wish, but you can only win one set of prizes!
  • Have Fun! :dance:

Current Prize Slots: (One per person...if someone places in both categories, they will receive the higher prize set, and the prizes will slide downward in the other category.)

A big thank you to generous donors to the group's general prize pool: DarkLover33, YppleJax
If anyone would like to donate more prizes, be they points, art, features, etc...just comment or drop me a note and I'll add 'em to the list and love you forever! :love:  If you can't help with prizes, just faving or featuring this journal would be a huge help as well! :hug:

Update 1: There are a little less than 36 hours left in the contest, but we only have one entry for poetry and none at all for prose!  Sharpen your quills and get scratching, heartfelt scribes!

Welcome Back!

:heart:    First, I hope everyone will be excited to learn that inknalcohol has joined us as a Contributor!  He'll be handling most prose submissions for now, and Yours Jaxly will be sweeping up the rest, with Shannon-Sweeney poking a finger in here and there when she finds the time.

:heart:    Next, I'm sure some of you have already noticed a trickle of submissions starting to come through...I've decided to start accepting submissions immediately.  If the volume grows faster than we pick up new Contributors to handle things, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, but for now I'd rather have something than nothing.

:heart:    So for now, be sure to give the rules a quick read first, but otherwise please feel free to once again share your literary love! :love:

P.S. Keep watching, we'll be offering some contests, challenges, and other opportunities for group participation in the very near future!  If you're interested in donating prizes for that sort of thing, thank you, just drop me or the group a note!

Any idea when the group will become active again?

I have a quick question before I goof up submissions.  I have a Fanfiction that also is listed as mature due to language and later adult content.  I want to double check where it would go first.  I submitted a few others under mature content because of these, but I'm worried I should've submitted them to Fanfiction.  It's a little confusing to me.  :)  I'd rather ask before I continue to goof up.  Thank you!

I joined because I was wondering if any of you could provide me with some feedback on my erotic short story, Daryl and Angela's Intimate Encounter.

Thank you very much for your member-approval.

May I ask, if I have a Romance play/script, where can I post into? Meow Love
