Write a short story, flash story, micro story, or whatever kind of story you want that is between 500 and 2,000 words. Stories must also be based on materials available in the library such as the Harry Potter series or The Lord of the Rings.
This story must be complete. Judges will not be reading additional content in order to gain context to your story so make sure the story has a beginning and an end. Your story must be able to stand on its own.
Stories must be original, unpublished, and your own work. Plagiarism will not be tolerated. Authors retain all rights to their work.
Judges will be looking for unique, creative, complete and compelling stories that are fanfiction, within the word limit, (have been edited for grammar and syntax), and are engaging to people who are familiar with the original work as well as those who are not.
Judges will award Gift Certificates of $75.00 (first place), $50.00 (second place) and $25.00 (third place) from the campus Bookstore.
Submissions (In MS Word Format) must be received either by email to (firstname.lastname@example.org) or delivered in person to a library staff member by noon on May 1st 2017.
