OT writing competition revival

OT writing competition revival

Postby it means no worries » February 23rd, 2018, 6:01 pm

I’m thinking of (an attempt at) reviving the OT writing competition because I think this will appeal to a wider range of people than the TLK specific ones do. We’ll try the first round without prompts, they can be put in later if deemed necessary. If some people actually reply to this thread then I’ll set deadlines/word counts etc

Standard rules:
>1000-4000 words
>No plagiarizing
>PG-13

This is being revived, haven't decided a submission deadline just yet

Welp, sounds fun but I’m probably going to embarrass myself.
How will the judging work?

Host usually posts the submissions without revealing the author and whoever wants to read and vote will do so. :)

Ooooh! Another question. Since it’s OT, can the submission be about anything or does it have to be vaguely related to The Lion King?

It can be about anything, doesn't have to be related to The Lion King at all if you don't want it to be.

Not for this contest :)

How do we enter our story? Are they still going to be anonymous like they were before by PMing them to you?
