I have a question. Exactly how long may our short stories be? Or are there no restrictions of that sort?

As with all our short story contests: We recommend about 1-3 pages. It can be longer than that but for the sanity of our judges please don't make it a full-length novel.

Gore is allowed but please try not to gross our judges out. In general you can get away with a bit more in our contests than you can in the room, but again it must be kept to an appropriate level. In this case, not too much blood and guts.

It's easier to get inspiration from a theme related to an experience you have had or a theme you just simply like. Option 2 in this tie breaking poll I think is my option. Being forced to talk about something you don't like, are not interested, etc. is the road to -learning new thing yes.- but also risking for the story to be dull, not interesting or not be made at all, school experience.

Waiting for this contest to start, I need to write a long 10 pages story to just put a water mark of "Not Yet Finished" on it using Office Word. Tho it's a short story so really limiting, why must it be short. Still, hurry up and start this contest. No rush intended nya.
