Last year, inspired by a list of obscure words being removed from one of the major dictionary publishers, I held a short story writing contest for anyone who wanted to participate. The deadline was my birthday, and three handmade prizes were awarded to the winners.
It was so much fun, I’ve decided to do it again, and in order to encourage more entries, I’m posting it here. This is an all ages contest (if you have budding writers in your homeschooling experiment, this might be fun for them), purely for the enjoyment of the exercise, and the full details can be found at my LiveJournal page.
Brush up on your iambic pentameter, because this year I’m accepting both 600 word short stories AND sonnets from eager epeolatrians.
. . . and I really need to make a banner or official image for this contest. The Golden Apple captivates viewers with its xanthic radiance, but what, pray tell, does it have to do with writing contests or the word epeolatry?
