Due to the site overhaul taking place at the Anthro Fiction Network www.anthrofiction.net , I have decided to host my own Anthro Fiction Contest.
CONTEST RULES FOR ANTHRO WRITERS
The contest theme will be UNIQUE RELATIONSHIPS. The goal is to write a story that focuses on how characters interact with one another in unusual situations. Examples include:
- Characters with multiple spouses
- Characters with opposing belief systems
- Humans as pets for animals
- A children-only society
- Reversed gender roles
- Characters displaced from their normal environment
-1- PG-13 (no overt sex)
-2- Keep adult language to a minimum
-3- Make sure anthro characters display animal-like traits and are not just humans in animal form.
-4- Word length: 1000-3500 words
And the evaluation system would follow the elements of:
from a scale of 1(poor) to 5(excellent).
This contest has the same rules as the Anthro Fiction Network, so anyone interested in training for their quarterly competitions could use the Tale Weaver Anthro Fiction contest as a proving ground.
CONTEST DEADLINE IS JANUARY 31st
