This event has finished. There were four stories by three authors.
Below is the PDF for you to read at your leisure.
I hope you enjoy it.
The link is in the main post.
I am pleased to announce another short story event. I hope this becomes a yearly event.
I would like readers to write a short story that uses one of the maps as its setting or one of the first four themes from the Hammer Cup 2017; Defend, Bridge, Toxic and Teleport.
This is an “event” NOT a challenge or competition. I am calling it an “event” because I would like to encourage as many people as possible to submit stories. I don’t only want people to submit if they think they can win.
I have no plans to offer a prize.
The maximum word count is 2,500, but that DOES NOT mean you must write that many. Even really short stories can be fun to read.
I understand that not everybody who uses this site is a native English speaker but the submission MUST be in English.
The submission must also be suitable for over 16 years old children to read. If I feel a submission is inappropriate for some readers, I will not publish it.
As with my previous story events (TREE Story event No.1 and TREE Story Event No.2) I will publish the submissions as a PDF, making it easier for people to read.
The deadline for submission is 31st December 2017.
Please email them to me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
They can be part of the email or attached as .txt files.
DO NOT send them as word documents or other word processing formats.
DO NOT post them here as comments.
If you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to post them here.
