Secret Author Short Story Contest - Hidden


Event details

Need a distraction from your current WIP or want to try something new? Our fun summer writing event, the Secret Author Short Story Contest could be perfect for you to flex your writing muscles! Rules remain very much the same: You cannot reveal your story to any beyond your beta/editing team (you will be able to add them to your story after the big reveal). Your story must be hidden from all others on the site.

And that's our THEME! "Hidden" What is hidden or who, how, when, where... or even why, that's up to you! 

General Rules

  • One story per author
  • Don't share your story idea, work in progress, or completed work with anyone but your team
  • Your story must be "new content" to remain anonymous (not set in previous series or world)
  • Allowed story length: 3,000 to 30,000 words
  • Chapters: 1 Story Chapter posted to GA (you can use ** or a double line break to indicate scene and timeline jumps).
  • Send Format: Word or Google Doc (PM Cia if you share via Google Docs, please!)
  • Submission Deadline: July 24, 2024
