Bookish Stories Competition

Bookish Stories Competition

September includes both "National Read a Book Day", and "International Literacy Day", which has inspired our latest competition.

Stories should be related to books / reading in some way.

Competition Theme

A scattering of plot seeds might help some authors harvest a few ideas:

Nerdy but kinky bookworms, sexy librarians, hot teacher / professor, literature / reading circles, author / editor / publisher power plays, sex games involving reciting book quotes and spanking as a punishment for failure, reading cafe hookups, undercover journalists investigating BDSM clubs and getting too involved, a ghostwriter hired to write for a sexy politician, sports figure, or actor etc.

As an added literary challenge, stories should be between 2500 and 3000 words.

All our standard story contest rules apply. All characters must be over the age of 16.


  • Winner: $150
  • Second Place: $100
  • Third Place: $50
