OK!

WE have our 3 judges.



Now that just leaves it to the rest of you to start writing and submitting!

Might enter, I used to write a lot but not so much. I say might not out of a lack of enthusiasm but a seemingly unbreakable curse when it comes to finishing any peice, I just can't do it... none the less this should be interesting. Good luck to the rest of you anyway.

Rule #11: No bribing the judges! :D

paladin and wordmerchant are judges. If the 3rd wants to reveal themself on the thread, that's fine.

10 people have said so far they might submit something. That's great! I can't wait for the first one to arrive!

It has, vaguely, but there was never a cash prize!

Well, if I can convince one of my plotbunnies to give me a short story and not another damn novel, I'll be in.

Btw, does 'previously published' only mean published in a paying ezine, magazine etc, or published on your own blog as well?

I'll give it a shot, but I have the same inability to finish disease as 13. Hopefully this is enough motivation.

Emailed submissions can be as attachments (MSWord preferred) or inline, whichever is more convenient.

Gabriele, For your question of a work being published on a blog: was that work subsequently commented on by others, causing revisions or changes? Was that blog submission subjected to any editing from an outside source? Basically, if it is original unadultered work that you published on your blog, then I don't see why it could not be submitted here.

Can some kind moderator sticky this thread? That way people will be continually reminded and I'll achieve the fame and fortune that goes hand in hand with having a thread stickied..... :p
