VOTING IS CLOSED
For Fiction entries, please proceed to the FICTION FORUM, first door on your left. For poetry entries, the POETRY FORUM is just across the corridor on your right. Virtual desserts, drinks, and lounging chairs are available for your enjoyment while you critique the entries. Just mind the extradimensional rift that opened in the rug; a team is scheduled to stitch it shut tomorrow.
Here are the Voting Rules to keep in mind:
Voting is open to all Legendfirians! You are REQUIRED to vote on every entry in the division(s) you entered.
Unless excused for serious reasons, you must vote on all entries. You will receive reminders of this requirement 1 week, 3 days, and 1 day prior to the end of the voting period. If you do not vote on ALL entries, your entry will be disqualified.
Schedule: Voting closes, Tuesday, 7 September, 11:59 pm US Central
Please follow these steps:
1. Critique each entry according to the following questions. Answer them as thoroughly as possible. Two sentences minimum per question. The goal is to help the author improve their craft. NOTE: voters who leave one-liner critiques to justify their vote will receive warnings according to our warning system.
* Technical writing elements: Which elements were technically sound in this entry? What still needs work?
* Artistic elements: What appealed to me in this entry? What might benefit from revision?
* Prompt: How well does this entry relate to the prompt?
2. Assign each area a numerical value: Rate each entry from 1 to 5, with five being the most favorable.
3. Add your scores and divide by 3 to get an average score. For example: 3.5 + 3 + 4 = 3.5 (The contest host will collect all the averaged scores for each entry and tally the overall average to determine the winners.)
* You may vote for yourself to maintain your anonymity. This vote will not count toward the final score.
* All entries must have the same number of votes for each vote to count. For example, if over half the entries receive 7 votes, we will set the final vote requirement to 7 votes per entry.
First Place winners of each category will receive a $10 gift certificate to Amazon or cash via PayPal.
