We want YOU to submit your best short fan fiction story for a competition at CaperCon! A panel of local writing experts will select the best overall story and the best off-the-wall fiction. So round up your OTPs, fix-its, AUs, and OCs.
Please check back for 2018 Entry Dates.


  • Spelling/grammar
  • Creativity
  • Clarity and flow
  • Overall quality of the writing


  • Fics (or excerpts) up to 7,500 words.
  • Provide your full name and contact information, identify your story’s fandom, genre, age rating, and any relevant warnings at the top of the page.
  • If your story has already been posted online, we will need some sort of proof that your story is your own and not stolen.
  • You must be an attendee of CaperCon 2018.
  • Make sure your text is an easily readable font/size.
  • Identify the competition category: Best Overall or Off-The-Wall.
    Best Overall entries should be single fandom (though not necessarily canon), and any OCs should be in keeping with canon. Off-The-Wall entries can include crack fics, AUs, crossovers, etc
  • You may submit a maximum of one story for each category.
  • Assume the judges have not seen the series your fic is based on. If there is anything they need to know to understand your story, please include a separate summary labeled ‘background information’.
  • 18+ material is allowed, but only if you are over the age of 18.

Due date: All entries must be submitted to caperconfics@gmail.com by September 8th, 2018

Winners will be announced on Sunday at the closing ceremonies of CaperCon 2018.
