The Contest Rules
We are taking submissions now. That said, here are the rules once all the submissions are in (yes…you can end a sentence with a preposition). You pick the genre and submit your piece. We will accept submissions through mid-June, giving writers time to write and submit.
Here we go:
- Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org (questions as well).
- Make sure you put “Writing Contest” in the subject line of your email.
- Check your grammar and syntax. I will tolerate some mistakes as this is normal for all writers; however, if your submission is filled with grammar errors, I will ask for a resubmission before the deadline. No submission is guaranteed to be published.
- Our regular contributors may participate (and are encouraged to do so), but cannot win the grand prize.
- To win, you must have the most likes on your post. Simple. It’s your job as the author to share and solicit votes.
- You cannot like your own post.
- Submissions should be under 4000 words.
- We will run the contest (voting) through June and possibly into the first part of July (these contests can often be a bit fluid). However, we will also be publishing other submissions after all of the contest submissions are posted.
- The grand prize will be $100 to the “post with the most” – the most “Likes.”
- There will also be a badge for the winner to place on their blog or website.
- All submitting writers must like our Facebook page and follow the site through one of our many “follow” options. This will serve to help writers stay informed about the site’s activities and announcements.
- Participation will give your bio, sites, and links exposure whether or not you win.
- Have fun, invite friends to read, and share this post.
Good luck everyone!
