The Rules

  1. Members only may submit stories, and the story must be your own work.

  2. Members may submit up to two stories.

  3. The story must be new and complete.

  4. The length must be less than 15 pages or 8500 words, single spaced (including lines between paragraphs) in 12 point font.

  5. All stories must be submitted by midnight, Eastern time, on July 31, 2011.

  6. Stories will be submitted by PMing them to one of the forum admins (here, here, or here) who will then post the story without the author’s name attached.

  7. This should be fairly obvious, but please do NOT tell anyone other than the admin you submit it to which story is yours.


  1. DO NOT vote until after we institute a voting thread, which will be after the submission deadline.

  2. Authors may not vote for their own stories.

  3. You will have up to 5 points with which to vote. You may vote for five stories, one point to each one, or give one story three points and another 2, however you wish, as long as they add up to no more than five points. You may only vote whole points (not anything like 2.5 points or something like that.)

Re: The Rules

No themes this year?

Re: The Rules

Good luck to all the active authors


Re: The Rules

Nope, no themes. I wouldn’t have minded seeing them myself, but there wasn’t enough interest in them to justify it.

Re: The Rules

Too bad about not having themes. I need some focus.
