    Icon3 ♥Creative Writing Contest♥



    Hello, and welcome to my new Creative Writing Contest!
    Everything you need to know about joining this contest, its rules, its background knowledge and its prizes are all listed down below, but before getting to those certain topics I will explain a little bit about me and my experience with stories and contests.



    I love to read and writing is my life. I tend to dream a lot during school more than I do at night and I can't stop listening to music and having fun. This here contest appeals to me because I would love to be able to read what some of your talents can possess. I would love to see each and everyone of you be complimented and honoured for your hard work and be rewarded for it.





    This story contest has certain rules to follow for eligibility, but then again don’t all contests?

    • Firstly, this contest has a specific topic guild line to follow. That topic revolves around the artistic, fantasy. Now, not to get confused with mythology, fantasy can have anything to do with faeries, trolls, vampires, witches and robots. Your story could contain ideas about powerless beings just trying to survive their days in the far future, or it could be about magestic pixies roaming the earth, casting devilish spells on everyone they happen to meet. Fantasy is a great topic where you can easily discuss your imagination, dreamful thoughts and nightmares all on paper.



    • The story should, preferably be no longer than 4000 words, for the sake of space and time. However, I will not accept any stories that are less than 200 words, so be detailed and creative.



    • Another important rule clarifies the acts towards one another. There will be no criticism, good OR bad, tolerated. Absolutely NO plagiarism will occur. No sarcastic remarks and above all, no put downs will be accepted, or else you will either be disqualified or easily reported for use of bad behaviour.

    Thank you.

    • See down below for the requirements the paper needs to have to be accepted.






    • Length should be no longer than 4000 words and no shorter than 200 words (Your story’s length will be counted by words and not size, so don’t think that you can get away with using a very large font size. Which brings us to our next requirement…)



    • Font Size should be no larger than 14 but no smaller than 12, so that is clear and easy to read, but also so that the story doesn’t seem unreasonably large when in fact, it isn’t.



    • Font Style should be Ariel or Times New Roman so that it is legible and easy to read for me and the others who will read it.



    • The Due Date this story should be turned in on would be that of December, 5th of this year at no specific time in the day or night. If you are late posting your story up you will automatically be disqualified. You are given, however, one extra day as support for your talented work.

    Thank you ma'am! ^^ It's okay if you don't really know what you are going to do exactly. I just need a rough sketch/idea so that I know what to expect. And about the font thing, its okay to right your posts in here in Trebuchet MS, but when it comes time for the actual story just highlight it all and change it at the very end if that works best for you. Because I really would like it to be in Ariel or Times New Roman. (Sorry I didn't PM you this :/)
    Thank you for your application and I hope to learn more about what your story is like! : )



    Anyone else want to join?? ^^
