Smut Marathon 2019: Results round 1

When I started the Smut Marathon last year, I was already dreaming of the next edition (and the next, and the next), and here we are, at the end of the first round of the second edition. This year it’s a bit more work than last year’s, not only for me but also for the jury members, and I am thinking about maximizing the number of entries in 2020. But, we’re not going to think about that just now!

Writers, just like last year, I want to address you here… by now you have probably read the feedback on your entry and if you have read feedback you don’t like, please don’t let that unsettle you. Turn it into something positive; something to learn from. All feedback has been given with the utmost respect for you, the writers, who have signed up for this and showed up in the first round. Because yes, some didn’t even show up, but just disappeared. Also, don’t despair when you see the points below, because so much can change in the second round, as long as you send in something! Just be proud of yourself, because really, you should!

It’s time for the results of the first voting round!

Public vote

During the voting round I keep track of all the votes, and when I see irregularities or strange patterns, I take action. The action can either be a warning to a writer, the elimination of a vote or the disqualification of a writer. I do give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but will not tolerate any cheating. Please note that the rules clearly say: one vote per person.

That said, let’s get down to the result of the public vote.

In total 158 legitimate votes have been received (you can see the voting in the images below).

Winner of the public vote: Justine Elyot with In Hand
First runner up: Chloe Sheila with Medusa
Second runner up: Wriggly Kitty with Cutting Edge

Next round

Thank you to everyone who has written for this round and thank you to all the voters who have taken the time to read the entries, to vote and for those who have given feedback. A special thanks to the jury members for their hard work!

No writers have to leave the marathon after this round, but at the end of the second round writers with the lowest overall points will be knocked out of the race, as we start round 3 with only 75 writers.

The writers will be sent the second assignment later today and have until midnight CET (Amsterdam time) on 27 February 2019 to send it in.

The next voting round opens on 3 March 2019 and I would love to see even more voters and feedback then!

~ Marie A. Rebelle
