SS/HG Smut Fest will be back again in 2017 for our second annual fest. Prompting will begin in just over a month from now!

2017 Fest Schedule
Thanks to everyone's feedback on last year's fest, this year's fest will have a longer period for creating your smutty masterpieces. Here is the fest timeline for 2017:

Prompting: June 2-16, 2017
Claiming opens: June 18, 2017
Submission deadline: August 18, 2017
Posting begins: September 1, 2017

Updated Rules
There have been a couple small updates to the rules this year:
  • All submissions must contain explicit sexual or erotic content, as outlined in these guidelines.
  • The minimum word count for fan fiction submitted to the fest is now 800 words

LJ TOS, Dreamwidth, and Posting
Livejournal will continue to be the primary home of SS/HG Smut Fest. However, the community has been backed up onto Dreamwidth in case of emergency, and you can find and join the community here: http://sshg-smut.dreamwidth.org/.

Posting in 2017 will occur on Livejournal, Dreamwidth, and AO3. Please note that due to the inability to schedule or crosspost on Dreamwidth communities, posting may occur at a slower rate on this service. Prompting and claiming will occur on Livejournal only. You do not need a Livejournal account to participate.

What is "Sexual and Erotic Content"?
For the purposes of SS/HG Smut Fest, "sexual and erotic content" describes graphic depictions of sexual intercourse, non-penetrative sex, or masturbation. It also includes elements of BDSM or fetish, provided they are highly sexualized in nature.

In essence, "sexual or erotic content" or "smut" refers to porn. It can be traditional porn, loving and sensual porn, porn without plot, porn buried in lots of plot, kinky porn, fetish porn, hilarious porn, beautifully rendered artistic porn—whatever you like, however you like, but it should occur "on screen" and be clear to the reader or viewer what is going on.

In general, this would require a content rating of NC-17 or Explicit.

Nudity, sex talk, and fetishes, without additional sexual content, do not meet the requirements for "sexual or erotic content" for the purposes of the fest.

If you have questions about whether or not what you have in mind meets the above guidelines, or have any other questions about the rules, please email the mod at sshgsmut@gmail.com.
