Happy Monday everyone! I hope the sun is shining wherever you are, and you can get outside for a moment to enjoy the spring-time!
So, shortly I'm going to be announcing our newest contest, which will run from April to the end of June!!! And y'all, I'm just as excited about this one because a lot of you write in this genre, and I've timed it with one of our upcoming holidays, I think it's going to be fantastic!
We all need a reminder now and again about our past as a country, and a reminder about the people who've come before us, the lesson of history is one we need to learn lest history repeat itself.
(Plus, there were just some really cool people who lived before our times XDD)
So without rambling any further, I would like to announce our HISTORICAL FICTION contest!!!
Yup, that's right! We're looking for stories (whether based on a person, place, or simply set during historical events with purely fictional characters) that will not only bring a light to the past, but help us remember what came before us.
The limit is 6,000 words, with a minimum of 1,000.
You may choose whichever tense you prefer, but please don't change your tense in the middle of your narrative.
You may also choose whichever POV you feel the most comfortable writing, or that may fit the narrative best.
Please make sure that your story fits our genre, taking place before our time.
The deadline for this contest is going to be June 30th, at midnight PST. We will be revealing the winner around July 4th, as we celebrate our own past and independence. :D
We will be updating the contest page here on our website, with an updated submission form, and a new Pinterest board to go along with this quarter's contest.
I'll include some inspirational collages, graphics, and possibly small historical stories (depending on time, haha) in our monthly contest update posts.
If you have any questions feel free to shoot us an email, or leave a comment and we'll get back to you ASAP! :)
I'll leave you with one more infographic, and once more, Happy Monday Y'all!
