Prose that Blows 4 – Your input requested

Posted in Uncategorized by doubleintegral on November 11, 2010

We understand that people get really busy during the Christmas season and may not have time to write stories.  In addition, any college students may go home for the holidays and may not have the necessary privacy to get a story done.  We want as many people as possible to participate in the contests and don’t want to go out of our way to make it hard to participate.

So, we want your input.  Right now we are throwing around three options:

  1. Maintain our current schedule, beginning PTB4 on December 17 and accepting submissions thru January 14.  Results would be posted on January 28.
  2. Start the contest early, beating the Christmas rush.  PTB4 would begin on November 15 and submissions would be due on December 17.  Results would be posted on December 31.
  3. Start the contest late, waiting out the holiday season entirely.  PTB4 would begin on January 7, submissions would be due on February 4, and the results would be posted on February 18.

Please go here and tell us what you think. If it doesn’t matter to you, there’s an option for that too.
