  1. How will the winner’s be chosen? Will it be strictly by votes, or will you be using the votes to compile a list of nominees to choose from?

  2. I would love it so much if any of you would vote for if you need a story for short story, romance, most wow-able, most contemporary, or most cry-inducing.

  3. hey guys im trying to enter the contest for a origional fiction story of about 500 words or less and it will be published in the seventeen magazine and you win some money too but i cant find how to enter and or the directions and the rules of it either. im sorry if this comes off as annoying but i just cant seem to find it. im new if it helps.

  4. Can everyone who comments (or most) please, please check out my short story Finally Free? I’m just trying to spread the word about how terrible, inhumane, sinful, and wrong Sexually Assault is. Please, I’m seriously begging now.
