Quality critiques are the heart of LegendFire, and it’s our pleasure to bring to you our first ever fiction drive!
WHAT IS THE MARVELOUS NEW THING?
It’s a brief push to encourage critiquing and showcase what LegendFire is all about. Post a story, critique a bit, get entered into a raffle drawing. The goal is to keep it casual, low-stress, energetic, informative, and fun.
To participate, you must POST ONE STORY or EXCERPT (up to 3500 words) in the FICTION FORUM (the main Fiction forum, not the subforums) and CRITIQUE any TWO stories by other participants. (I will check word counts to ensure pieces remain under 3500)
All LF’s rules surrounding critiquing still apply. Keep it constructive and respectful.
Friday March 19 - Tuesday March 30
Post stories any time between Friday March 19 and Thursday March 25, 11:59 pm. Begin critiquing immediately or whenever is most convenient, through Sunday April 4, 11:59 pm.
Please have your story posted by the end of March 25, to ensure others have time to critique it.
WHAT MAY YOU POST?
Any WIP you have been working on or that has been languishing in your desk drawer (up to 3500 words). This includes:
stories you may have written for LegendFire’s past contests
opening novel chapters
up to three flash fiction pieces (each 1000 words max, posted in the same post).
Be cautious about posting rough drafts. Polish before you post.
REQUIRED. To help us differentiate your story from non-participating stories, and so we know to include you in the raffle drawing, the title of your post needs to follow this pattern:
“FICTION DRIVE: Your-Title-Here”
On Wednesday March 31, we will enter all participants’ names into a hat. You must complete two critiques to be entered. The winner will receive an ebook copy of The Emotion Thesaurus, contributed by ScienceGirl.
All participants will earn 100 Hard Points upon completing two critiques.
No need to register. Just post your entry in the Fiction Forum using the required title any time before March 31.
