    Writing Contests!

    Post  Tiresias on Sun Apr 22, 2012 2:19 am

    Hello, folks!

    I'm going to set up a monthly writing contest on the forum (an opportunity largely unavailable - or at least impractical - back on the imageboard). A theme will be set each month, a deadline will be set, and then submissions will be invited to be sent directly to my account (via the personal messaging function). I will post all the submissions I receive - anonymity will therefore be maintained in the interest of fairness - and set up a poll which will allow us all to vote for our favourite (again, anonymously). My plan is as follows:

    1st - Announce theme (I don't envisage any formal restrictions)
    3rd - Welcome submissions
    20th - Submissions deadline, all works posted
    21st - Poll opened
    29th - Poll closed
    30th - Winning entry and writer announced


    I hope that it'll be a lot of fun, plus it's always good to have a reason to write. Also, we have very talented individuals on here: I expect the standard will be high. Perhaps we can set something up with TAR, in terms of publishing the works that win but that remains to be seen.

    If enough interest is evinced we'll begin on May 1st.

    Sounds like some fun. Striking a deal with TAR would also be cool (and ensure some actually good writing on there).

    Anyways, setting up something with TAR shouldn't be all that hard. Since i'm already here. I can ask the other editors.

    I hope that the forum and TAR can benefit from the connection. I'm a big fan of TAR (and not just because it - almost - shares a name with one of my favourite novels)!

    I hope I didn't cause too much offense. I only have support for the people working on it. If we can get a connection with TAR and this forum I think it'll help both sides out quite a bit.
