BFME2 Heaven presents a fiction writing contest!

The contest will have two categories: short story (1-7 pages) and novella (8-25 pages).

Rules

•The story must be set in Middle Earth, i.e. the LOTR universe.
•The story must be in English, though some characters may use other established languages from Middle Earth (i.e. don’t make up your own language and call it Elvish).
•The story must be an original work by you; not copied from elsewhere, and not submitted on the behalf of anyone else.
•By submitting your work to us, you agree that we may share the work with our own staff and, after the contest, the BFME2H community as a whole. We will retain any copyright you list on the work as well as your name in our distribution of it. You give us permission to read and release it to the community.
•Avoid graphic descriptions of sex and violence. The language in the stories should be readable by all members of our community and not break the CoC.
•Your HG user account must be in good standing, i.e. you cannot submit an entry if you are banned.
•Spelling and grammar will be taken into consideration during the judging.
•Non-judging staff members of HG are allowed to enter.
•Entries should be single-spaced, Times New Roman 12pt font text files (.doc, .txt) and be emailed as attachments to kester@heavengames.com.
•You may enter each category, but only one submission per category.
•Deadline for entries is midnight, forum time, January 15th!

Do the stories have to be directly connected with Lord of the Rings or can they just be set in Middle Earth with drawves and elves but not have the heroes of the fellowship.

Wow.

I have so many fan fics written about Middle Earth, I feel like this deserves some new material though.

The title is whatever you want it to be I think, but even if it isn't, it will be cool none the less.

Read carefully. It's submitted by email.
I may participate. I'm about the busiest person on the planet, though I have a very good idea.

*back to answer queries*

Quoted from Alex:

Do the stories have to be directly connected with Lord of the Rings or can they just be set in Middle Earth with drawves and elves but not have the heroes of the fellowship.

Just set in Middle Earth - they don't have to include any of the characters.

Quoted from Franey_rules:

can we use our characters from AC as characters in our story?

Sure, I have no problem with that.

As for font, let's go with Times New Roman, 12 pt.

Yes, you may enter both categories, but only one submission for each.

I'm tempted to participate, but I've got a busy school year, revision for prelims, and so on, grumble grumble grumble grumble...

I might do some writing, but I've got little chance of finishing something I'm happy with in time. I hope there's another contest during a quieter spell!

Not started. I'm taking the Christmas break off, basically.
Kester, I'm hoping to get a map to you before the New Year. Is a ROTWK map ok?
