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
--English
--Easily readable and understandable
--Sticks to the topic
--Creativity
--Originality

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 Submission” (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!

I believe I have an idea ... It was going to be in a cafe, but I think I can work the festival theme. If I can squeeze it in somewhere between the other projects. Sign me up.  Grin

a fiction writing contest here on The Cauldron.
I have the theme simmering on a back burner of my brain; we'll see if anything comes of it.  I've been thinking of getting back to fiction writing.

Hmm, this sounds like it could be fun.  I'm in... tentatively (time permitting). 

Now then, does anyone know how to stop time long enough for me to fit this into an already packed schedule?  Smiley

Welcome aboard...tentatively.  Smiley

As for stopping time, the only way I can think of would be to either unplug all clocks, remove the batteries or break them...Other than that, sorry but I can't help ya.  Wink
