The Fiction Tuesday Writing Contest.

Pirate’s Daily Writing Prompts.

The rules:

1. Write a story of no more that 3000 and not less than 1000 words (give for take a few hundred) based on ANY of the Pirate’s Daily Writing Prompts.
2. This is very important! The story must have a rating of PG-13 or less.
3. The story should be upbeat. This means it need not necessarily have a happy ending, but at least it should not end so badly that people go away feeling worse than when they started.
4. Stories need to be original and unpublished. no re-prints please!
5. Going along with being original we cannot accept FanFic of any kind.

How to submit a story:

Stories should be sent in text format in an e-mail to Piratescove @ flyingislandpress . com with the subject line of Tuesday Fiction Contest.

How will stories be selected:

All stories submitted will be put into “The Hold.” (that is pirate talk for slush pile) We will pick the best ones and publish those. If you submit a story you will be notified within two weeks if it has been accepted, and given and approximate publication date.

How stories get published:

We will release an audio version (most probably just a straight read) and the text of your story for our listener / readers to enjoy

Get paid for the stories:

You have a lot of questions you know that? But it’s funny you should ask that question. Pirate’s Cove does not currently have a budget to buy stories, we can barely keep the crew fed. However, we do believe that you deserved to get paid for your work. So this is the deal. On each and every story that gets published we will have a donate button. The First $20 in donations, that comes in goes directly to the author, after that it is a 60/40 split (You get 60% and we get 40% this will help us in the future to be able to offer you more great piratey things)

If you have more questions please feel free to contact us at Piratescove@ FlyingIslandPres . com We look forward to hearing from you
