Kiss Scene Judging

Kiss Scene, a Flipside contest!

Hosted by [Mister Saint]


Mushy stuff ahoy! Yes, this contest is about writing your best kiss scene! Don't let the title fool you, though... it's not all roses and romance.



A kiss can convey many things. Gratitude, love, friendship, passion, good wishes, sympathy, sometimes even hatred and anger.

A kiss scene is also a tough one to pull off believably. Now, our goal in this contest is to write a kiss scene, but remember... it doesn't have to be a kiss of love. Or even a kiss between people, as the example story (please read it!) will convey. Be creative, be believable, and remember to pucker up!

<img:> Rules <img:>

1. Both poetry and prose are allowed.

2. Submissions must involve the theme.

3. Original work only, please.

4. Spellcheck and grammar check your work. This time, grammar and spelling errors will hurt your entry's score, so check 'em!

5. No longer than 2000 words prose, or 50 lines of poetry.

6. Respect the work of others.

7. The deadline for this contest is January 30th, 2006. Late entries will not be accepted.

8. Content: Submissions should be clean enough for twelve year olds to read. So profanity, gore, and sexual content should be kept to reasonable levels.

9. Entries will be judged on the following criteria: Creativity, adherence to the theme, grammar and spelling, and overall effect.

Note: I want absolutely no pornography in this contest. Be tasteful with your kiss scenes. Sexual content of any sort should be STRICTLY avoided for this particular contest, because of the slightly risky theme. Thanks!

For an example of a kiss scene, see 79.Example of a Kiss.


As usual, the winner will have the option of receiving a free critique/edit on any piece of hir own writing, by [Mister Saint], so long as that piece is not incredibly long. (No more than 10,000 words, please. The winner should speak to [Mister Saint] about the content of the piece, as some topics may meet with personal bias, upon being declared winner.) A winner's button will be supplied, as will a runner-up.



Please give your username, a link to your story, and a word count if at all possible. For poems, a line count is preferable.
