I’m sure it’ll be a lot sooner this year, with the ceremony postponed. Perhaps it’ll be announced within the next few days

Hi Elessar! Wow, you’re seventeen? I’m two years younger than you. It's really cool that you pursue your dream and aim for publication. I’m doing the same :) Best of luck on your submission!

Re: Do the judges have a preferred style?

My general recommendation is: Write what you love. My more specific recommendation is: Write what you love, first and foremost, but checking out the last few anthologies to get an idea of the sorts of things the judges have accepted in the past is probably not a bad idea. Some judges have a hard pr...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

I understand how you feel about the upcoming results. I’m also working on a 70,000 word novel which I plan to submit it to another contest next week, but I just can’t focus wholeheartedly whenever I think of my story being judged (probably right at this moment) wotf012 Good luck to all the particip...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

Hey everyone, I submitted my first story last December to WoTF for V37 Q1. Although I'm in the midst of writing a novel, the wait for this short story result is starting to get very exciting (and dare I say distracting? Oh, look what I found: wotf060). It's a thrill though. Now whenever I get tired...

Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 37

Hello everyone, I have a question. I saw the results for V36 Q1 posted on May 15 on the blog. But when I checked the forum, I noticed that many contestants knew their results (such as HM or R) BEFORE the winner list was announced on the blog. I thought that only the finalists and winners would get t...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hello, great writers. You can call me Hermione, like my English teachers do. I live and write in Taiwan, this little island by China. I submitted my first story to the Writers of the Future contest last December. I’m quite lonely, because I’m the only one in my class who writes stories in English. I...
