Time is running out for group members to submit their work for the writing contest. The contest ends on December 31st, so please submit before time runs out. If we don’t receive more entries, we may have to extend the deadline. Below is the information again.

Happy holidays to all, see you in the New Year!
___________________________________________________________________________



"Time for our November writing contest! I know I know –it’s the end of November, but I post it so late so people have more time to write during the holidays and for all the NANO writers (PS NANO writers, this is a cool article talking about all the past NANO-ers whose books were published: mentalfloss.com/article/53481/…

If you don’t want to enter but might be interested in judging, please see the :star::star::star: section below.

:bulletyellow: PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF WRITERS4LIFE TO ENTER

:sun: Timeline: Contest starts today 11/28/14 and ends 12/31/14

:sun: Theme: There is no theme to write about. Write what interest you, what you love and what will make the judges not want to leave their computer until they’ve finished reading your amazing piece!

:sun: What to write :writersblock:: Anything, you can write a short story, poetry, :music: lyrics. Keep in mind though that if you submit fanfiction, there is the possibility that the judges will not know the characters or plot you are writing off of. I wouldn’t suggest fanfiction for this reason, but if you can write something accessible to everyone reading, you’re welcome to.

:sun: Word Count: At or under 3,000 words. I hate placing word limits, :cry: BUT we have over 800 members! That’s a lot to read even if only half our group members submitted :work: So please keep your work at or under the word count. Thank you!

:sun : Multiple Submissions: One piece per member I’d love to have more entries, but as stated, we have a lot of members and it would just get to be too much. Sorry about that.

:sun: Submitting ‘old’ works: You are more than welcome to submit older work or one that is already in your gallery. However, I strongly advise that you edit your piece and make sure its absolutely amazing and ready to submit.

:sun: Submitting a piece to other contest: You may submit a piece to us that has previously been used in other writing contest or is currently being used. You may not submit work to us that was submitted to a past Writers4Life contest however.

:sun: Privacy :ashamed:: If you are self-conscious about submitting, do not worry as it will only be judges seeing your piece, no one else will know you submitted it to us, unless you win that is. :w00t:

:sun: How to submit :star: Send a note TO THE GROUP with a link to your submission, or you may paste it directly into the note. Please do not send to our personal accounts, your submission may be forgotten if submitted to our personal accounts instead of the group account.

:sun: Prizes

Which folder should I put this “FanFiction” or “Chapters”? we-love-mj.deviantart.com/art/… It’s about deaf girl met Michael Jackson. It’s a original story.

If it has more than one chapter, then I just "Chapters". "FanFiction" falls more along the lines of people writing stories based off other characters ex. Harry Potter, Transformers etc I hope that helps

Is it possible here for one to become a contributor, by chance?

We do have one contributor -our group actually doesn't see much of them (I'm not sure if they still come on to DeviantArt). If you're still interested, let me know and I see about setting it up.
