Welcome Authors! Please Read

Hi all! I was talking to a Lit author the other day, and during the course of the conversation realized that he had never been to our Writer's Resource area. Thinking that there were probably a couple others out there who didn't know about the goodies hidden away in that section, I thought I'd make a post with links for your reference.

Here are a few links within Lit that Authors might find useful/helpful/interesting:
  • Frequently Asked Questions - A basic guide to all things Lit, from creating a member account to submitting stories to using the Bulletin Board.
  • Writer's Resources - Here you'll find links to our Submission Guidelines and contest info, as well as dozens of helpful essays (many written by your fellow Lit writers) on the various aspects of writing.
  • Submission Guidelines - Everything you need to know about submitting a story to Literotica.
  • Volunteer Editors - Our Volunteer Editor program is still a work in progress. Currently, this is a list of Literotica supporters who are willing to help you refine your story. Eventually, we plan to automate it and add nifty features for both editors and writer alike.
  • Literotica Contests - All the details on our monthly & special theme contests.

We have a few projects in the works, and will add more author-related links to this thread as they go live. Thanks for everything, and let me know if you have any comments or questions!

2011 Contest Schedule

2011 Contest Schedule

Here's the contest list for 2011 - looking much like 2010! This schedule seems to be working so far. That said, we may change dates throughout the year, though we won't change contest deadlines in the midst of the contest. Please do check back when a contest approaches to verify all deadlines.

As always, these contests are held in addition to the regular monthly contests. The "starts" date is the date you can begin submitting. The "closes" date is the very last day you can submit. (So long as your story is submitted on the "closes" date, your story will be counted in the contest, even if the story isn't posted that day.)

PLEASE NOTE: DO read ALL contest rules. We had many cases of authors not putting the proper phrase in the NOTES field, which meant that we couldn't find their submission and thus they were not entered in contests. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do read the special contest announcements when they are posted (usually around two weeks before the contest start).

Full contest rules can be found here.

Thanks, and have a great year!
