Passionate Plume Judge Information
Are you a passionate reader of erotic fiction or erotic romance?
Do you want to discover new authors to add to your auto-buy list and help Passionate Ink identify some of the best works published in 2022?
Or maybe you’re an erotic fiction or erotic romance author or editor and you’d like to help out our “virgin” authors who haven’t been published yet?
If your answer is “yes” to any of those questions, sign up to be a Passionate Plume contest judge!
- Judges receive a panel of 1-3 ebooks to read or 3-5 Virgin entries to judge and critique. (More entries may be requested after your first set of scores are returned.)
- Virgin category entries will consist of the first 5,000 words of an entrant’s unpublished manuscript, plus a sales description. Judges will complete a constructive critique, which will be returned to the entrant. You may view the Virgin Category FAQ for further information.
- A scoring rubric will be provided for all entries. A formal written critique is not needed for entries in any category except the Virgin.
- Entries will be emailed to volunteer judges on or before Wednesday, April 26, 2023 along with scoring instructions.
- Scores are due by Wednesday, May 30, 2023.
- All readers of erotic fiction and erotic romance (including authors) are welcome to volunteer to judge the preliminary rounds.
- Judges’ identities are kept confidential.
