PokeHeroes's 1st Creative Writing Contest!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



-closes book-

Hello Everyone,

It's SilverLugia456 here with an great post announcement for a contest that PokeHeroes is hosting.

We are going to host our very first Writing contest here on PokeHeroes, and it's going to be awesome! It seems like there is a lot going around in Emera Town, at the beach, and even at the Professor's Lab. As our first writing contest it was difficult to choose what the theme would be regarding what stories we could write about, so after much deliberation between the characters and our staff we have come to the conclusion that our first writing contest theme would be: Residents of Emera Town

List of Emera Residents

Professor Rowan
Fancy Salon Lady
DayCare Couple
Los Seashellos Waiter
Leah the Mermaid
Hiker from the Higher or Lower game
The Gem Collector
Professor Oak (from the vs. events)

Each day in Emera Town whether its the professor in his lab or Leah down by the beach there is a story that could be told. Some crazy adventure that we haven't see before or a memory that wants to be shared. So we would like to have the members of the PokeHeroes Community come up with their own stories for the adventures that they could see the residents of Emera Town having. It could be comedic, adventurous, action-packed, maybe even a big tragedy or disaster. Some residents may have just had one of those days.

Requirements

- You may submit only 1 story.
- Each story can be up to 500 words (so a short flash fiction story)
- Keep the stories appropriate for all ages, don't go excessive with blood, guts, gore, language, ect. If you do then your story won't be read or considered in the contest.
- Make sure to stick with the theme of using one of the characters from Emera Town as your main character. You may create your own supporting characters but the story revolves around the Emera Town residents.
- Stories must be original and created from scratch by the member, don't copyright something else offsite or from another member.
- Send your story to Me (SilverLugia456) through a PM message.

Prizes

There will be top three prizes for the stories entered.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place stories will get a flute combo pack (blue + black)

There will also be a consolation prize of 500 event points for everyone who participates in the contest.


Deadline

The deadline for submitting your story is: September 21st
The stories will be read and reviewed by us the staff and the finalist will be chosen.

FAQ

- How do I submit my story to you?
A. You can create your story in a separate program like Microsoft word and then copy and paste it as a PM message and send it directly to me (SilverLugia456)
- What if we are a few words over the word limited from the Requirements?
A. We do allow submissions that may be a few words over but if you have a story that is 530 words + then try to trim it down more. Word counts of 501-510 is fine.
- What if my story doesn't fit in one PM when I send it to you?
You story should be able to find in one PM when you send it but if by some chance it doesn't then let me know in the first pm that the story continues to a second one and then send it.
- Could I have my story focus around more than one resident of Emera Town?
Yes, of course you can.

Any other questions you can message me about it or post it in this topic.


Thanks for reading and we the staff look forward to reading the stories that you create. ^_^

The residents include the human characters, but Mewton M. Meowth could be considered as a side character in the story.

I'm with poptart88, a short list of the residents would be nice, so we don't accidentely take a non-resident for our short story.

A list of residents would be nice, as all I can think of is the Daycare Man, Rowan, Bill (maybe?), Leah, the waiter in Los seashellos, and maybe the hiker and bug catcher in the higher to lower game and bug catching contest. May we please get a list of the human residents as to not mix up the story and use a non-resident for our stories as KiraNear mentioned. Thanks.

What should we do for residents that don't have an actual name? Should we just give them one?

Sure you can give them a name as long as you attach their title to them. So since you have the gem collector you can give him a name but make sure to say that he is the gem collector as well.




@Everyone else - Sure I can add a list of the residents of Emera Town.

On a side note, The Gem Collector's name is Greg, he says so in his introduction. :0

The gem collector does actually tell us his name.
"Hey dude! My name is Greg - but everyone just calls me "The Gem Collector"."

Tbh I just want to write a story and have it submitted for the views I really don't want to be a contestant in it all. I prefer seeing people read my stuff and say "Hey this is some good story writing" and be happy it was written? Ig I am weird

Nothing is set in stone.
Except, of course, things that are LITERALLY set in stone.
