As the Army of Brass draws to a close, we at the Collaborative Writing Challenge are turning our eyes to the horizon. In addition to showcasing the people who write chapters for the novel, our releases also feature a short story competition. We are a volunteer organization that donates 10% of our earnings to charity, so we ask that participants donate $5 to help get Army of Brass, and the accompanying short story, out into the world.
Here’s the basic idea, but you can get all the details at the CWC website.
Deadline: August 31, 2017
Who can submit: Anyone. You don’t need to have been a contributor to Army of Brass to enter.
Word count: Between 2500-3500 words. It must be a self-contained short story, and it must be in the Steampunk genre. (This, of course, covers a wide range of topics. Check out my definition of Steampunk on the homepage below the meme for guidance.)
They will award prizes to the first and second place submissions.
