Short Story Contest 62 Submissions & Details Thread Theme: "Being A Nazi Officer" Open to all, newbies and established members alike. Please post your entries as replies to this post. At the deadline I will collate all entries and put them forward for voting in a seperate thread. The winning entry will be stickied until the next competition winner. Sadly, there is no prize on offer except pride. Theme: "Being A Nazi Officer" (courtesy of member Davylove 21). I think it goes without saying, but any piece that is overly violent or insensitive will be removed due to the site's PG13 nature and intolerance of purposefully inciteful or inflammatory material. Perhaps think along the lines of conflict, both internal and external, rather than the grizzly horrors of war and of racial hatred. This said, open interpretation is valid providing the above caveat is followed. Suggested Wordlimit: 500 - 3000 words. Deadline for entries: February 22nd 2010 10.00 am (UK local) There is a 10% word-limit leniency at both ends of the scale. Please try to stick within the limit. As below, any piece outside of the suggested limit may not be entered into the voting. The next contests will be themed "Voyeurs" (Twisted Inversly) and "Fictional (Auto)Biography" (LordKyleofEarth) respectively. If you would like to prepare an entry in advance for these contest you may, but do not submit an entry for these contests until instructed to do so. There is a maximum of 20 entries to any contest. If there are more than 20 entries to any one contest I will decide which are entered into voting based on adherence to the suggested word limit and relevance to the theme, not on a first-come-first served basis. Try to make all your entries complete and have an ending rather than be an extract from a larger one and please try to stick to the topic. Any piece seemingly outside of the topic will be dealt with in a piece by piece manner to decide its legitamacy for the contest. Submissions may not have been previously posted on this site, nor may they be posted for review until voting has closed. Only one entry per contest please. Please try to refrain from itallicising, bolding, colouring or indenting any text to help avoid disappointment. These stylistics do not reproduce when I copy-paste them into the voting thread. You may use visible noparse BB code to preserve style if you wish by placing [ noparse ] and [ /noparse ] (without the spaces) around the entire text. Please remember to give your piece a title and give its word count in brackets at the top of your story. If there are any questions, please leave me a visitor message or PM me. Please do not clog up this, or any other thread, with your questions. Thanks and good luck.
