Literary Maneuvers October 2021: The Cat Parade
Welcome to the cat parade! What story can you spin out our feline prompt this month?
650 words, deadline 23:59 GMT / 18:59 EST, Saturday, 16 October
If you win, you'll get a badge pinned to your profile, plus the chance to enter our Feb 2022 Grand Fiction Challenge, which carries cash prizes.
The judges this month are vranger, Taylor, Llyralen and piperofyork. If you'd like to volunteer, please let me know via PM or in the Coffee Shop. If you wish to know more about scoring, take a look at the NEW JUDGING GUIDE which also includes a template to use for your scoring. Please use this template for consistency.
All entries that wish to retain their first rights should post in the LM WORKSHOP THREAD.
All anonymous entries will be PMed to myself and please note in the PM whether you want your entry posted in the workshop.
Please check out our Rules and Policies for extra details on the LM contests.
Everyone is welcome to participate, including judges. A judge's entry will receive a review by their fellow judges, but it will not receive a score, though some judges are happy to let you know their score for you privately. Please refrain from 'like'-ing or 'lol'-ing an entry until the scores are posted.
Judges: If you could send the scores no later than October 31st, it will ensure a timely release of results. Much later than that and I will have to post with what I have. Again, please see the Judging Guidelines if you have questions. Following the suggested formatting will be much appreciated, too.
