This contest requires "blind" entries. That means your posted work will have no means to identify you when viewed. Your name and other information will not be shown. Fan notifications will not be sent for work posted in this contest. It will still be available in your portfolio and treated like all other posts. But when viewed information to identify it with you will not be shown until after the voting is completed. As a blind entry, authors should make every effort to ensure that their identity can not be determined from the post. That includes formatting of text, descriptions, title formatting and author notes.

If a word count is not specified above there is no word count requirement. Recommended length is 5,000 words or less.

This contest is open to all members. Past contest winners can join the contest. A voting booth will be created shortly after the deadline is reached. At that time all participants will be contacted so they can vote.

The voting booth will include this summary of the contest:

    No using bad alphabet words in your story like a**, b****, c***, d***, f***, f*****, p****, or s**. Your story MUST be between 2 and 20,000 words.

    You MUST USE the cursive font (available in the advanced editor).

    You have two options for color:

    1 - You may use one font color and it MUST BE BROWN or yellow. The background MUST BE YELLOW or brown. Any shade of yellow or brown is acceptable. Making your text bold is recommended; cursive font can be difficult to read.

    2 - you may use lots of the color red.

    You may NOT grope or molest the cute baby animals.

    If you are not using the colors yellow and brown you MUST include a warning for violence, and have lots of it. This is a zoo, not a yoga studio.

    Use of suspense is encouraged.

    The last sentence must be garishly happy.
