 All decisions are final.  Prize money will be paid via PayPal.  Stories will be judged on aspects of storytelling, so be sure to submit a polished piece.  We will mainly be looking at content and character connection, though.  So more than editing, you need to focus on telling an amazing story that we won’t want to stop reading from the first word to the last.

Please also use the Contact Us page to let us know that you’ve withdrawn your entry.
