Signature for Honorable Mentions in 2018 Quill Awards

We all have those poems and stories we feel really deserved to win contests but didn't. Well, step inside for a contest that gives your items a second chance.

In the Second Time Around Contest, we are slightly different to most of the others. Whereas, usually, you are asked for new writing only, in this contest we want old writing only. You must have already entered it into a Writing.com contest. The item must not have placed.

If you want to revise your items before you submit them, that's fine. We're all about producing the best writing possible. You don't have to revise them, though. You can enter them exactly as they were in the previous contest.

Rule Book Image for Second Time Around Contest.

Just a few rules ...

*StarV* Read the rules! Very important.
*StarV* Your entry must have been previously entered into a contest it did not place. You must note which contest at the top of your item. For purposes of this contest, Honourable Mentions don’t count as placing, so you may enter them.
*Starv* Awarded items are acceptable, as long as you state the contest they did not win.
*StarV* Short stories and poetry accepted.
*Starv* Everyone may enter one item in each category, so two items in total.
*Starv* Short stories maximum word count is 3,000. Poetry maximum line count is 60. These must be included on the item.
*StarV* Any genre stories and poetry, up to a maximum of 18+. Items must be rated correctly. For poetry, please note the form on the item.
*Starv* No pornography. This will not be accepted.
*StarV* Entries must be viewable. Nothing set to private or needing a passkey.
*Starv* Editing is allowed up until the close date of the round.
*Starv* Entries must either be in the B-item format {bitem:xxxxxxx} or entry format {entry:xxxxxxx}

The contest will run from the 15th of every month to midnight on the 14th of the following month.
