SMOLDR Romance Writing Contest

Contest ending today.



Entry Fees



First Place: $500

The SMOLDR Creative Group is running a unique romance contest that takes place in the enchanting town of Lake Covington. There, you’ll find several lustful locals in need of your matchmaking assistance. Once you enter the contest and pay the entry fee of $15, you’ll be assigned a couple, a romantic trope that is predominately used throughout the genre, and a spellbinding location. After you receive your items, your job is to create a tantalizing story that leaves us breathless within 5,000 words.

There will be 18 winning stories that are guaranteed publication in our Lake Covington anthology with a projected publication date of February 14, 2020. Of those 18 stories, three will be considered for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes. First prize winner will receive $500, second $250, and third $100.

We hope you consider visiting our quaint town at and getting to know our residents and learn more about Lake Covington.
