It may surprise you, at first, to learn that the Fallfire "Written Works" category often attracts a great diversity of creative work. In addition to the popular submission of poetry (snippets of past Fallfire poetry entries are shown above), past entrants have also submitted short stories, music and song lyrics, one-act plays, and even a book of local history! Some written entries are submitted electronically as attachments sent to the Fallfire e-mail address, which are then printed out in a standard font for the judges, while others have been preprinted, or even framed, by the artist before being entered into the contest. There is no advantage nor disadvantage in either method, and winners have come from both entry "styles," so anyone submitting to the Fallfire "Written Works" category should do whichever they believe best suits his or her intent. For music, we need an electronic version (cd, file attachment, etc.) to review, but most stuff is just fine as e-mail content or as sent in a letter. Actual, physical items can also be dropped off in person at our secure street address before the deadline. Enter as many times as you like, but, while there is no fee for one or even two entries, we are asking for a $10 jury fee for each "third or more" entry, which must accompany the submission. As always, make sure that you include answers to our Entry Form questions!
