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.
- 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: Late summer 2018. Check back for official closing date.
Winners will be announced on Sunday at the closing ceremonies of CaperCon 2018.
