    LITERARY MANEUVERS




    To enter this competition, you must meet one of two requirements.



    • Winner of at least one of the previous fiction LMs
    • Be a 5-Star Judge or higher whilst having judged at least one competition in the year of 2015



    Send your story to me via private message. Approximately 48 hours after you do so, I'll post it to the workshop thread anonymously. Within those 48 hours, you may send any change you wish to make. Once your story is posted by me, no changes will be made. You have until the very last minute of the competition to send your entry, but you can't make any changes after the competition ends. If at any point in the future you would like me to delete your story, just ask. If you're unable to reach me, ask my esteemed colleague Bishop. If he is not available, ask one of the other moderators on the site after notifying the proper authorities.

    The prompt this year: Dead by Dawn

    You've got 1000 words at your disposal, choose them wisely.

    Your identity will be revealed upon release of the results.

    “On the chest of a barmaid in Sale, were tattooed all the prices of ale. And on her behind, for the sake of the blind, was the same only written in braille"


    "Ambiguity is one of the greatest faults in a craft. It comes from vague ambitions. One may inspired by good ambitions, but the immediate concern of the craftsman is to know what he is capable of doing at present; and to do it."
