Hello and greetings to all of you! I have started another contest because a lot of you liked my last one! In this contest, you will be expected to write a story about a certain setting.

I will be giving out a 'best short story' award, a 'best poem' award, and a first, second, and third place overall award.

When you sign up, you have to say if you are entering for 'best short story' or 'best poem'. If you don't want to be in either those, just say that you don't want to be in either of those. Everybody will be automatically put in the overall section.

If less that five people enter, I will only give out first place. I'm sorry, but I don't like having so little people that if there are three people, the person who got third place will know that theirs is the worst.

If less that five people enter 'best short story' and 'best poem', it will be normal since there is only one awarded anyways.

So, here are the rules:

Rule #1:

I don't know how many times I have to say this: NO EROTICA OR MATURE CONTENT! Yes, cuss words are considered mature.

If I am reading your piece and it breaks this rule, it will be immeadiately disqualified.

Rule #2:

Only poems and short stories: NO NOVELS.

If you tell me that it is a novel, I will not read it, and I will tell you (AGAIN) that it is supposed to be a short story or poem.

Rule #3:

At the end of the rules, there will be a list of settings. Only one person per setting, so this is a first come-first serve kind of deal.

Rule #4:

I really do love long stories and poems, but I am fairly busy. Please no poems or short stories that are over 2,000 words.

Rule #5:

Just so other people get a chance, you may only enter once...

If you have ANY questions, comment below!

If needed, I will add more settings. I just realized that this will be a big hit and if it fills up, people will be dissapointed and will not do the rest of my contests...

If try to get as many different countries as I can. I think that I got all of the continents...

DEADLINE:

Tuesday, July 2. If all places are taken before then, I will move the deadline to that day, since this contest would be useless with all of the places taken!

REMEMBER: HAVE FUN!
