  1. #6 under How to Enter said that we had to begin the story with the above quote, but I didn’t see a quote. Was that a type or did I just miss it when I read through the instructions?

  2. Hi. #5 on your rules mentions beginning your entry with the above quote. Is that a leftover from the June Challenge, or is there a special quote that I can’t find. Thanks.

  3. Hi! I know this is probably a stupid question but I was wondering what you meant by, “Begin your story with the above quote.” I super new here, so maybe I just don’t know where to look. I know for the June contest you had a quote under “Prompt,” but there doesn’t seem to be one here. Like I said, probably a stupid question, but I could use the help.

    Thanks so much for your help!

  4. Does it have to be about a particular person’s accomplishments as an animal rights activist or can it be about animal rights activists in general?

  5. Hey! Um, I wrote a story a long time ago and tagged it “animalrights” and people keep thinking its in the contest. If I get rid of the tag should it take it off?

    • Hi Hailey! Sorry that is happening. Maybe you could add a note in your description temporarily that lets people know you’re not entering? Or tag it in a way that won’t show up in the entries list?

  6. hi, does the actvist have to be a full on, ‘registered activist’? Or can they be someone who does some of the small things, someone who plays kind of a small part in the grand animal rights scheme of things?
