    Annual Short Story Competition 2010

    Dear All,

    The Literature Network will hold an annual short story competition, which will be open to all its members. The rules of the competition are:

    1. The stories should be submitted as email attachments in MS Word format and should be minimum 500 and maximum 2000 words and include your Forum names as well. Please send your stories to [email protected]. Please do not post your stories on the Forum!

    2. There will be 5 selections (in February, April, June, August and October) throughout the year and only the stories which have been submitted before the first of these months will be included in that month's elimination. The five stories which win the each selection will take part in the final voting in November and December.

    3. Members can submit only one entry for each selection round. If their story is a winner, they will not be allowed to take part in other selections.

    4. The Admin or Moderators are not responsible for editing or correcting of the stories and therefore the writers themselves are required to make sure that there are no grammatical or spelling errors. The submitted copy is final and further corrections by the writers will be disregarded.

    5. Please still submit your stories in MS Word.docs. or Rich Text.rtf or Notepad.txt files, but PLAIN TEXT only.

    If you want to FORMAT your stories, use the vBulletin forum codes, which can be found here:

    http://www.online-literature.com/for....php?do=bbcode

    6. Only those members with at least 100 posts by each voting period can submit stories for the competition and vote in the polls.

    7. Those who enter the competition agree to keep the information on their identities and stories confidential till the end of that year (only the Admin and Moderators will have access to that information). Those who breach this rule will be disqualified automatically.

    8. All entries should be your own original work and not have appeared anywhere else before. Authors retain the copyright rights for the stories submitted to the competition.

    9. All submissions must be your sole creative work and written for this particular competition. Anyone found plagiarising will be disqualified from this and all future contests.

    10. If one of the 5 entrants selected for the final vote are no longer a member of the site at the time of the final vote, they forfeit their entry and the second place entry for their leg of entries gets bumped to first place.

    11. You can withdraw a story during the submission period; however, once the voting starts, no story can be withdrawn.

    Good luck!
    Those members who would like to take part in the first elimination in February can send their entries now (no later than January 31st).

    --

    Please post to this thread only if you have specific questions about the competition and we will try to answer as soon as possible.

    For some folks it's a holiday weekend... I expect you'll see a group of stories in no time. Don't forget how long it was into April, before we finally had a winner for the February round.
    Hang in there, Nik

    Would you care to form a full sentence/question?

    That sounds like such a thing a teacher would say!

    Alright, I'll for the question:
    Are there any June stories to review?
    LET THERE BE LIGHT
