Stringybark Publishing is proud to sponsor the Stringybark Erotic Fiction Short Story Award 2023.
1. Consent for any sexual activity between characters must be explicit to the reader either through dialogue of the actions of the characters. 'No' never means 'yes'.
2. The characters must be over the age of consent in your jurisdiction and have a minimum age of 16 (the age of consent in NSW).
3. Any sexual activity MUST be legal.
The story must be:
• 1800 words or fewer in length;
• be erotic
• written for an audience aged 16 and above.
We have an award pool of over $1000 in cash and books to encourage you in this endeavour, provided by our sponsor Stringybark Publishing.
Reading other stories is a great way to gain inspiration for your own writing. Head over to the Bookshop to read some great short stories from other Stringybark anthologies.
