We’re looking for romance stories that remind us why love is both the most joyful and most painful part of life. The 3 best entries will also receive a cash prize and the chance to publish a novel with Hyperink, an innovative digital publisher. We’ll publish the best stories in our anthology. All accepted authors get a byline and a copy of the book.

  • First Place: $500
  • Second Place: $300
  • Third Place: $200

Deadline: July 29, 2011 (We may extend the deadline depending on the volume of submissions.)

Notification: August 19, via email and website announcement.


We don’t want to limit your creativity, so our guidelines are minimal:

* Romance must feature prominently in your story.
* Word count: Less than 5,000 words. No minimum.
* Your submission must be your own original content. (Sorry fanfic writers!)
* You may submit as many entries as you want.
* We accept doc, docx, pdf, and rtf formats.
* We do not accept previously published content.
* Proofread your submission for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

We will not reject stories for their genre, age rating, or subject matter.

Email your submission to contests@hyperinkpress.com or submit through the form below. Include your full name, pen name (if applicable) and tell us a little bit about yourself.

The Hyperink publishing team will read and judge every entry. All decisions on winning entries are final.

We’ll list the winners on our site and notify them via email on August 19th.
