Well since summer is over and I don't have any excuses to be lazy anymore, how about we start off this round of writing contests with Halloween?
It's the season for Witches and Ghouls, Wraiths and candy!
We haven't had one of these in a while, so the rules are going to be a little lax this time around, just to get everybody's head in the game.
I'm accepting all forms of writing. Short stories and poems, you can write a limerick if you'd like. You can write as many different flavors as
you'd like, but only 1 official entry!
As a special mention, please be mindful of gore in your stories. Yes I know it's Halloween and a little mess is required, but let's not write the
kind of gore than you're supposed to enjoy, for the sake of gore alright?
Rules Of Entry
The contest will run from Friday 10/02/15 to Sunday 10/31/15 at Midnight. Any submissions after that date will be disqualified. A period of voting
after the closing of the contest will also be provided.
6 days of voting.
All T&C's Apply
All entries MUST include [Halloween2015] in the title.
All entries must be linked in this thread. You must include [writer] / [non-writer] in your submission post within this thread.
There is no minimum or maximum character count.
1 Single Submission Per Member
There will be 3 winners among members who already have "Writer" status. They will be judged separately from all other entries based on stars and flags
1st Place -- 5 Applause, and selection of the next contest theme
2nd Place -- 3 Applause
3rd Place -- 1 Applause
There will also be 3 winners from the non-writer category who will receive the following:
1st Place -- 3 Applause & Writer Status
2nd Place -- 2 Applause & Writer Status
3rd Place -- 2 Applause
Flags will be worth 2 points each.
Stars will be worth 1 point each.
*Stars for subsequent posts (ie. additions to the story) will be worth .5 stars.
