I'd like to submit something for consideration, but I'm new to the site....Would it be impertinant of me?

Secondly, I can't sneeze without going over 2,500 words. I have a short fiction that comes in at just under 4,000 would that be considered too long?

Tony... Smile

Ps...Forgot to mention, what a good idea and fine oportunity this is, well done all involved with this project.

You're more than welcome to join in, Tony.

Not sure about a 4,000 word piece, though. If you can come up with something shorter, that would be great. Otherwise, send the long one and TheDeer will have a look (he has a rather short attention span and tends to nod off around 2,500 words Laughing ).

Cheers Donna
I'm sure a stand alone novel excerpt is not beyond me. Failing that, I'll send in the 4,000 and send the Deer to sleep.... Smile Laughing

Tony... Smile

Sorry to keep asking questions but on the guidelines it says you can't submit anything that has been published anywhere...does this include stuff entered for competitions on another writing site that are posted to be read if they win?
Do forgive me blathering on... Embarassed

Yes, a piece that's publicly available to be read on the internet is considered 'published', Tapes.

Don't know if anyone has noticed, but the Bee persuaded Donna to add a small range of flashy items on the Deer website ... things like mugs,tee shirts etc.

I couldn't help myself Embarassed

But they do look AWFULLY snazzy!

No doubt will be adding, in the long term, some Write Idea ones too, but we've got a bit of work to do on the logo

So go on ... flaunt yer Deer Shocked

TWI a closed group that's only available for viewing by registered members. So, work that is posted within this forum is not considered 'previously published'.

If you've got something you've worked on from the forum, Mike, it's submittable!

This looks great.

I'm catching up on various bits and pieces at the moment and have been very busy missing out on things like this. I would like to submit something for next time if possible. I don't currently have a website but it's something I'm working on so by the next round I should be prepared.

Please add me to the subscribers list!

Smile

You don't have to have a website, Effie.
