    Good afternoon to you all!

    Following on from the increasing popularity that the Monthly DeviantArt Contest is getting, we thought it would be a great idea to offer the same contest to any aspiring writers out there! This contest will run at the same time as the Art Contest and we will sometimes be matching the themes for both contests.

    This is how it's going to work.

    1st day of the month: The theme for the story will be announced. We will post a thread on the UKoE Fimfiction Group and open up a folder for where you can submit your stories to. The topic will also be mentioned here as well.

    25th day of the month: We will close for entries and the judging and voting will begin! A polling page will be opened and you will all have the chance to vote with which you thought the best stories were.

    Last day of the month: A winner and two runner-ups will be announced via here and the FimFiction Group. The winning stories will be placed in our Featured box for the upcoming month.

    To be a part of this contest, you must be a FimFiction member. The submitting process for FimFiction is very simple to work with but if anyone has any problems at all, please feel free to message me.

    The word limit is 5,000 words!

    Our first contest will start on the 1st of July so keep your eyes peeled!

    Sounds fun.
    I find having a deadline is a great way to actually get me to finish the stories i write.

    Ooh, this is very tempting! Three and a bit weeks... I might just about manage to put out a thousand words in that time. ;) But seriously, yes, I'd be more than interested in having a go at this. :)

    Oh how exciting! I may finally start a story and actually get all the way to the end. At the very least I will attempt an entry. One question though, is there going to be a word limit on the stories?

    I used to write many MANY years ago and it's something I've always wanted to try and get back into.

    This might be just the opportunity I've been looking for. I shall be keeping an eye on this :D

    I'll probably take part in this — might as well add even more stories to my already bloated workload. xD

    Right guys and girls! Sorry for the late post, just got home from work! The theme this month is.......

    SLUMBER PARTIES!

    You have until the 25th of July to submit your story to Fimfiction and to add it to the 'Slumber Party - July 2014' folder on the UKofE Group. Your story should be no more than 5,000 words and it must remain family friendly.

    Aaaaaaand......GO!

    Ooh, interesting topic! I have a couple of ideas knocking around on this broad theme. Now to see whether they could make a story!

    3000 words seems a bit short, any chance of making the limit 4-5k?

    Finally got an idea, which I will write when I get home tomorrow. I'd do it now, but this computer I am on is really slow.

    In fact, I think it's worse than @8_Bit's computer — and that's saying something.
