In order to ensure, as much as possible, your submission meets your expectations when viewed by someone on the website or by our judges, please follow the submission standard below. As WordPress themes may be problematic, the closer your submission is to what works when the story is posted, the better it will appear.
Each challenge entry is limited to 525 words. If you submit a story with 526 words, you will be asked to edit your story if time allows. Generally, I do not check entries until the day of submission. I will attempt to contact you but if I am unable to reach you before post time, your story will be rejected. No exceptions.
Please remember to give your story a title and please include your name. The title and your name does not count towards the word limit.
Please, no indentations. The WordPress theme removes indentations. Do not use the tab key.
Please note the WordPress theme used in our website will delete any spaces in your submission that it does not know what those spaces are for. If you double or triple space between paragraphs, the theme will extend that even further or simply remove them. I suggest if you want to double space because of a change in your story, insert some asterisks (*****). The html coding will not rearrange your story, causing formatting issues.
All submissions must be attached to an email and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do NOT include your story in the email text. Attach it.
Please ensure the attachment is a .doc, .docx or .rtf file extension. If you are unable to save your story in one of those formats, use whatever you have but understand if the story loses something (formatting, spelling, punctuation, etc) in translation, while I will do what I can when I can to correct it, it is what it is.
