    Been wondering this myself. Was considering throwing my hat in the ring once the anniversary one wrapped up.

    Thank god someone brought this up. I've been checking the forum everyday to see when the contests are back. The 10 year anniversary contest has been wrapped up for a while now, at the very least it would be nice to get some updates regarding the contest.
    I used to be a semi-regular participant in the bi-weekly short story contest, really miss it now.

    I've been wondering this myself. I'd throw in for the flash fiction for sure.

    Wrey said in another thread that the contest is on hiatus until Daniel decides on a new format.

    I guess I missed what Daniel said, but couldn't the contest mods start the contests again until he decides on the new format? I don't see any harm in that.

    I too have been waiting for a new contest to pop up, as I didn't feel brave enough before to do a short story contest. Definitely wouldn't win it but it would help me practice
    I mean if anyone needs a contest mod, I'd be happy to help
    :whistle: (I have far too much time on my hands currently)

    Oh wow. I totally did not know that. Well, if a contest mod is still needed, I can start helping again. I've had a long enough vacation. :)

    Yeah I'm done with my master's degree and although I'll be working 40 hours a week now (damn real life) I want to try to enter contests regularly instead of on breaks from school, which is what I used to do. Get the damn contests going or I'll fart!
