Overall Polling Results
If you want to see how all the stories have collected votes, then this will take you to a composite results page.
The story is to be:
- A Summer Vacation
- Vacation Romance
- May be a person met on vacation or who was known already
The basic rules are simple:
- Minimum word count (as counted by software) 12,000 words. Stories will not be disqualified if they are slightly shorter, but this is a good length to aim for
- No maximum word count
- The author may be one person, or more than one writing in collaboration.
- A short story is as valid an entry as a novel, and vice versa.
The story may be a new story, an existing story, or current work in progress. It is unlikely that any stories involving S&M or bondage will be allowed in the competition, nor will any stories about non consensual sex.
During the period when the floor is open for the public to make ratings the stories will be given no attribution at all to an author. When the ratings period closes the author name or pen name will be revealed.
Stories do not need to contain or avoid sexual encounters, nor need they be gay male stories, though authors' attention is drawn to the fact that this is primarily a gay site, with a gay male majority in the audience.
