The Unexpected Love Contest

Thu Feb 14, 2013, 12:02 AM
Has someone special that you love surprised, delighted, or changed your life in an unexpected, but joyful way? I want to hear your stories.

So Unexpected…


One of the best things about finding new love is the excitement and anticipation of the unknown. All of us at one time have felt that exhilarating feeling of unforeseen passion. I want for you to express to me in a poem or short story this unexpected feeling, and what it ultimately means to you. Be as vividly original as you can to make your deviation stand out, but do keep our key elements of what you feel the aspects of “unexpected love” entails as your primary motivation while writing.

:heart: Your Submission Guidelines: :heart:



:bulletred: Your submissions must be new deviations entered after today. Please note all of your entries to LadyLincoln marked as: “Unexpected Love Contest.” Your deadline is March 1st.

:bulletred: Poetry and prose is accepted. Prose writers: make sure your stories are no longer than 3,000 words in length. Novel excerpts will be also accepted, but they must abide by the project guidelines set above. Poetry enthusiasts: your new deviations should be no longer than 40 lines in length.

:bulletred: Fictional pieces are welcomed, so long as it keeps with the unexpected romance theme. No fanfiction will be accepted.

:bulletred: Prize donators may enter, but not judges. (Judges: feel free to whip up a creative piece for fun, should you so choose!) Our selected judges will be closely looking at how you were able to incorporate our primary romance genre, your overall creativity with the piece and the masterful techniques you used throughout.

:bulletred: Please keep all Literature entries as polished and clean as possible. If something is mature, flag it as such.

This contest ended a year ago -- but a subscription is being considered a "premium member."
