Hi all, I'm new here, but last night I wrote my short story, and I'm ready to submit it to the competition. Can I? And if so, to where should I post it?

Teejay

Loved Porky Pig!

First time I heard that many years ago, I was driving. Nearly went off the road, lol.

Teejay, from what i read above I don't think you can submit the story, yet.

Hey so, let's so you win, how do you get the prizes?
And is there an age limit.

Does it have to be a complete book?

Anthony Haven

@Troy The prizes are digital. So it should be an easy transfer over for you to receive it if you win. There will be no age limit on the first contest coming up.

Also, it will be short story, free range, and 2500 words (can be a little under or over)

Can't wait for this competition to start up. After finishing NaNo last week something smaller will be much appreciated XD

Troy n' Dubstep

so, can it be around a thousand words?

Point deduction for spelling errors?

judycolella

The contest is for a story that's a little under or a little over 2500 - only 1000 is lots more than a little under, lol.

As for the spelling, consider it like this: let's say both you and another member submit a story of, say, 2300 words each. Both stories are good, both have... mehr anzeigen

Angely...good point. Type of language; I'd tread lightly there. You must be the judge, however. We've all read great stories with the occasional (GERMANE to the character) four letter word, however, most of us can recognize foul language for the sake of shock, or just use of... mehr anzeigen

The question was posed to me this morning vis a vis lower cap end of submissions. i defer this to Anthony, but the question was, "I have a 1,000 word short story I'd like to submit Is it in violation of the lower cap?"

My answer to this writer was, "No, I see no problem with a... mehr anzeigen

Okay, thanks.

I was looking through the submissions and noticed that two of them are way beyond the word-count limit. One is 5,112 words while the other is 7,791 words. Can the writers be contacted, perhaps, and asked to either submit a different, shorter work that fits the contest... mehr anzeigen

L. Avery Brown

I would definitely contact them Judy and let them know. 75 maybe 100 words over is doable but I think anything beyond that would disqualify them for sure.

I'll let you have the honor of doing the contacting!
