    The Great Flash Fiction Competition

    Post by Jeremor on Tue Jun 17, 2014 3:00 pm


    Welcome to the Flash Fiction competition!

    Now, the first thing you might be asking is "what is flash fiction anyway?" Boy, it's a good thing I made this handy bullet list for just such a question!

    Flash Fiction And What We Expect From You

    • Any piece of fiction between 200 and 1000 words.
    • Written around a specific theme, which we will supply.
    • Should be focused and concise, but still enjoyable to read.
    • Your entry must be submitted to us through PM, not posted here.
    • All entries must adhere to the Forum Rules.
    • Your entry must stay within that contest's word limit to be accepted.
    • Once we have the set number of entries, judging will begin.


    The Contest

    This thread will be used for posting up the next theme and all the rules associate with that contest. Your entry must adhere to all of the things that the latest contest asks for, such as the word limit and the theme. Winners will be chosen based on who does this the best, by making great use of their limited word count to still deliver an enjoyable piece of writing that gives us a very good sense of the theme. Entries that stray off topic from the theme will have a much harder time winning than those entries that focus on it directly. Any entry that is not within the word limit will not be accepted, until it's been changed to fit. We will inform anyone of problems with their entry, through PM.

    When the contest has reached it's necessary amount of entries to proceed, we will begin the judging period. This may take anywhere from a week to a month. After that's finished, we'll post all the entries in this thread and mark out the winners of each contest. The winners will then be given a badge and also placed into the Winner's Circle group for a while, so they can have nice pretty names and everybody will know how awesome they are. Depending on the contest, there may also be other prizes at stake, so definitely stay tuned for those! On top of all that, just by entering the contest you will get a hefty little Honey bonus.

    And there you go, my buzzy bees, everything you need to know about our little flash fiction competition. We sure do hope y'all will join up directly and show us all just what a great writer you are!

    Now, to be clear as possible, DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRIES IN THIS THREAD. Send them in a private message to either myself or Bee, and we will file them away and post them in the thread ourselves at the end of the competition. Thank you very much, now get to writing!

    The First Contest: Bad Jokes

    Hello hello, is this mic on? Are you ready for the very first contest that will be held on TWB? Save your applause for after the show, please. Now, here's the details, so listen up.

    This contest's theme will be to...

    Show us how (un)funny you are.

    What does this mean? Well, it's largely up to your interpretation, but what we're looking for is a story that revolves around jokes. Bad jokes. Of course all entries must adhere to the forum rules, located Here, but otherwise you are free to portray this theme in any way you can think of.

    You will have no more than 500 words to complete this challenge.

    The contest will be considered 'full' when we have at least 5 entries. You may only submit one story per contest, and all entries must be PM'd to me. Any entry posted in this thread will not be accepted until it is private messaged to me.

    Alright yall, now get to it! Give us some dreadful jokes to groan at!
