Well here is it.  I suppose I have been promising it for long enough.  After our lovely little first contest, I really wanted our second one to be a glittering all singing, all dancing affair.

So this competition will be big!  (GO AND CHECK OUT THE JOURNAL PAGE)

V IMPORTANT - YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE-LITERATI TO ENTER THIS CONTEST.   It is very easy to join simple go here and follow the instructions, to join ^_^

Literature

After much debate and discussion with you lot I have decided on three different avenues you can take.  It all equals the same in the end.  I just know that many of you prefer to use different sorts of prompts.  This is so everyone can have a shot at something they find best...

PICTURE PROMPT

:bulletgreen: Family Ties by Sakanoue
(be sure to give full credit to this picture, especially if you use it as you use it as your preview)

OPENING LINES

:bulletgreen: "You see, it's hard to explain..."

SINGLE PROMPT WORD

:bulletgreen: Cheating



To Enter/Rules

:bulletgreen: Simply send a note to :iconthe-literati: with the word Contest Submission in the title.  

:bulletgreen: It doesn't matter which of the three prompts you do but you can only enter one piece.   And that piece must have been written specifically for this contest and say so in the comments.

:bulletgreen: It can be any form of literature - poetry or prose.

:bulletgreen: The all important closing date shall be on   August 10th 2008   That is to give everyone plenty of time to get their entry done.



Prizes - remember this list is far from finished.  I shall be constantly adding to it (I hope ^_^ if you want to donate please note The-Literati about it)

There will be three winners - 1st place, 2nd place and Honourable Mention the list of prizes will be updated regularly, so it's easier just to go here and look ^_^

Please do keep donating anything you can, more critiques, or anything.  Every little thing is appreciated.

Sorry, one last question: If the writing is of a more...personal nature, do we have to submit it first?

Umm do you mean mature content? Because I really have no problem with that but the same entry rules apply.

No, not mature.

Never mind, the question doesn't matter anymore. But thank you for replying just the same.

Do we submit with a link in the note, because I don't know how to send one. A link, I mean.
