A contest for all you history lovers out there. Let the games begin!



*Reading*Welcome to the Historical Fiction Short Story Contest!*Reading*


Round 5 is now open!


I'm on a mission to read the best historical fiction here at WDC.

THE RULES


Theme: Historical Fiction.

Prompt: Location: The United States or Canada.

Only short stories and novel excerpts will be accepted. No poetry, please.

THE STORY MUST HAVE THE WORD COUNT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

Word limit: 2,500 words.

YOU MUST INCLUDE THE YEAR OR ERA AT THE TOP OF YOUR STORY. For example, "1909," or "Circa 2000 B.C."

Submissions must be newly written for this contest, and cannot have received an awardicon already.

Once you submit your item, do not edit it. I might read it before the deadline to get a head start.

Please post your entry into your message in bitem format. For example, {bitem:1234567} is how you would write it, just replace the numbers with the numbers of your static item ID.
