How to participate in Stories for Awesome

We're here to collect a series of awesome stories, compile them, and sell them for charity.

How do I go about doing this?
You write a short story or a poem and you send your contribution in an email to
Entries for short stories have a 500 minimum word limit and a 4000 maximum word limit. Poems have a 4000 maximum word limit, but no minimum limit.

At the end of your email, please include the the genre of your work. Sci-Fi, romance, horror and so on. If you are submitting a poem, you simply write "Poetry".

When you have submitted your story/poem to to, it will be approved or declined after being read by our "jury". If your story is approved, we will contact you to inform you if we feel that any changes are required.

When submitting, please send your story/poetry as an attachment rather than the contents in an email.

My story/poem was declined, why is this?
Your story/poem was probably declined because the language you used was deemed inappropriate by the jury or because it was found to contain examples of the following: racism, sexism, inappropriate sexual content, homophobia, defamation, bullying or any other form of discrimination or hate speech.

If you wish register a complaint, please make the subject of the email "Complaint".

Will I earn any money off this?
No, you will not. All money raised will go to charity.

Will the creators of this earn any money off this?
No, all the money will go to charity.

DEADLINE: 1st of July 2011.

I hope that we will be able to get at least some basic thing up. For now, that's really all we need. And we need it rather quickly, to be honest.

I need to get in touch with heather. I think she was the one who said she'd help with it. If not, I need another programmer. Also, the FB page seems to have attracted a reasonable amount of interest.

Eh, we've still got time. Also does anyone know anything else on the site? I spent like £10 on that domain durnit!
