The Swords & Sorcery Contest
|Deadline:||Aug 15, 2010|
As we were lounging about the Scribo-castle pondering our next writing contest (steins of mead in hand, of course), we realized that in the two-and-some years Scribophile's been around, the one kind of contest we haven't had yet is a fantasy writing contest. It's time to fix that!
Introducing the Swords and Sorcery contest, the contest where we get to read your fantasy short stories. Break out your maces, axes, and hammers, polish your claymores, dust off your wands, put on your robes and wizard hats, get the elves drunk, grease up the dwarves for battle, and write the best damn fantasy short story you can!
Submit your under-3000-word fantasy-themed short stories before August 15 to be considered. Have fun, and who knows, maybe we'll see the next Lord of the Rings come from a Scribophile...
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
|1st prize:||$50 Amazon.com gift card|
|2nd prize:||$25 Amazon.com gift card|
Your entry must be fantasy short story under 3000 words.
Entries must be received by August 15, 2010, and winners will be announced within two weeks of that date.
Entries will be judged by the Scribophile staff, taking into consideration the ratings given by Scribophile members. Decisions are final.
Only one entry is allowed per member. Multiple entries will all be disqualified.
To enter the contest, post your work on Scribophile and tag it with "swords and sorcery contest" (without quotes). Your work will automatically be considered.
Entry is free, but you'll need karma points to post your work. You can earn karma points by writing critiques of work by other members.
Email submissions will not be accepted.
