A CONTEST FOR NEWBIES ON BOOKSIE.

 

Hello guys I have seen loads of contests here on booksie. So I thought why not give it a shot. So here comes a contest. Its for all the new booksie members.

 

What is this contest all about:

This contest is made by me for all the newbies on booksie. I know that the old users are just awesome and really very talented, but now I wanted to reward the new users who have joined recently. Its like the debut award or the fresh face of cinemas award. You get it right?

Dates and details for the contest:

Ok. So um this contest begins from today. I declare this “MOST TALENTED NEWBIE ON BOOKSIE CONTEST” open. You can write a short story or poem and post it. Mind it it’s a “short story” not a novel if you write a novel and post it to me, no I wont accept it.” So let me let a word limit to be more precise. Lets say ummnn. 1000 words- 1500 words. Mind it not a word more than 1500, not even 1. If its 1501 I will cancel the post. And the poem you get it.

Write the short story or poem and post it on booksie. And then comment on this post. Mark my words “THIS POST IN THE COMMENT BOX BELOW NOT ON MY PROFILE” and give me the link to read your short story or poem.

The contest registration form is valid till half a month, that is fifteen days from now. To be more precise I say comment within 20th march 2013. Comment within before the given date and only then I would accept your registration and let you in this contest. I may not reply instantly but I would as soon as I would see your comment. And if I don’t reply means that you’re request has been rejected. Mwahhhahhahh (evil smile). Don’t worry just joking I wont do that. I would read your comments till 20th march 2013 till 12:00 midnight. If you comment at 12:01 am I would consider it as 21st April comments registration and wont take it into the contest. So hurry.

In brief- submit your registration form before 20th march 2013.

And for the post I give you like a month. I will take the post link till 20th april 2013. You can start submitting from 10 april 2013 and not before that and upto 20th april 2013 and not after that.
