Cauldron Fiction Writing Contest

HeartShadow, ShadowCat and I have come up with the idea to have a fiction writing contest here on The Cauldron. If you would like to participate, please read the following rules:

The Cauldron fiction contest August 2007 Rules:

Theme: Harvest Festival
Length: a maximum of 6000 words

Contest opens: August 10, 2007
Contest closes: September 15, 2007
Voting starts: October 1, 2007
Winners notified: October 8, 2007
Honorary Prize: Avatar or Sig Pic, by Cat, and publication in Cauldron and Candle, the TC newsletter
Judges: Celtee, ShadowCat, HeartShadow

Judging criteria:
--Clear, concise writing
--Easily readable and understandable
--Sticks to the topic

Two submissions maximum per person. However, only ONE submission will be allowed into the final judging so it is fair for everyone.

Contest open to all members of The Cauldron.

Submissions must follow all rules of The Cauldron; including being PG-13 or better.

HeartShadow, ShadowCat and I will be the judges with the (impossible) job of narrowing all entries down to the top three. After the contest ends and the top three are picked, they will be posted on the board and all members of The Cauldron will be able to vote for their favorite.

PM Celtee through her profile for her email address. In the subject line of the email, put your Cauldron name and "Cauldron Submissio" (f’ex: "Celtee’s Cauldron Submission") and note “ESL” if English is not your first language.

Hope you participate. Can't wait to see your submissions so dust off your paper, sharpen your pencils and let the stories unfold!
