Contest Update


The new I Write the Songs contest has officially launched! The first one was extremely popular and responsible for many wonderful new SVM fics. This one promises to be jusy as exciting. Like in the first one, you must use a song as the title, but this version also welcomes multi-chapter fics and pairings other than Eric and Sookie. Check the blog for all the details. Submissions are accepted May 21-July 15. Happy writing!

Summer Challenges and Contests

There are some exciting new challenges and contests taking place and coming up in the SVM fandom! Let's all sharpen our keyboards and get ready to write. Then we get to sit back and enjoy all the entries.


Chronicles of an Adventure is an exciting new contest/challenge hybrid in which writers are invited to write a single chapter of a mystery, and every week a public vote determines which chapter will be chosen. The story will evolve into a true collaboration as each chapter determines the direction of the story.

The first chapters have already been submitted (my apologies to the hosts for the tardiness of this post), and we can all vote on them here starting Wednesday, April 18, through Saturday. The winning chapter will be the prompt for the second chapter. Make sure to check the sites for all the rules of this very unique challenge!


Random-fanndomdotnet over on fanfiction.net has announced the Every Picture Tells a Story Super-Challenge! It's a multi fandom challenge in which writers can gaze at a gorgeous selection of photographs until their muses hop out of the photos, sparking an idea for a fabulous one shot! Click here for the details and photos.

The champion of this anonymous challenge (chosen by public vote) will win a $50 gift certificate from Amazon. All entries will be accepted between May 14 and June 15. Happy writing!



One more thing ... tweets have been spotted that indicate that our very own Northwoman is considering hosting a second "I Write the Songs" contest! The last one was a smashing success, of course, and I'm sure we'd all welcome another one. Let's hope we have something other than a rumor to report on this very soon.
