Here's more from this year's organizer ChloeTzang:

Here on Literotica, in recognition of Geek Pride Day, one of our fellow writers, PuckIt, organized the inaugural Literotica Geek Pride Day Story Event on May 25th, 2018. This was such a popular event with writers and readers that year that we ran it again in 2019 and 2020, and we're enthusiastically running it again for 2021!
... and as PuckIt isn't available, Chloe's volunteered once again to kick the Geek Day Event off on his behalf and at least try and answer any questions. (Although I may plead for help if the answers to the questions are beyond me).
The 25th of May was first organized as Geek Pride Day in 2006 by the Spanish blogger Germán Martínez (known online as Señor Buebo). Since then, Geek Pride Day has slowly gained international recognition (in certain Geek circles) and we on Literotica want to do our bit to celebrate Geek Pride.
So let the Force guide your fingers. Start writing! This isn't a "by invitation only" event. This isn't a competition. There's no placing. There's no prizes. This is for the sheer joy of writing alongside a bunch of other Literotica writers. This is for anyone on Literotica who would like to try it out. You don't have to have written anything before to write for this event. First time writers and veteran Literoticans alike are all invited and encouraged to participate.
The Rules are actually really simple (please read them all to make sure your story is included in the event!):
► Have an awesome idea with some kind of geeky theme. Sci-Fi or Fantasy is the most likely category, but if you want to get geeky in any other category, you go for it!
► Any geeky subject, any category, any length you like. But please, only stand-alone stories (if you need clarification on that or any other rule, ask the friendly folks over at the 2021 Literotica Geek Pride Story Event: Official Support Thread).
► Author must copy and paste the phrase "2021 Literotica Geek Pride Story Event" in the "Notes" field of the submission. We recommend that you COPY & PASTE it into the NOTES field to avoid typos.
►Please use "Geek Pride" as a story tag.
►All entries to be submitted by 11:59pm, May 24th. You can submit any time between May 18th and May 24th. All stories will be posted on Monday, May 25th.
So what are you waiting for?! Visit the 2021 Literotica Geek Pride Story Event: Official Support Thread for full rules, submission info, and of course support and encouragement from your fellow authors.
