Taylor Fanfic Contest!

Mon, Oct 8, 2012 at 7:11 AM

Credit to Hannah Tomlinson (InMyBestRedDress) for starting a fanfic revolution!!

So, I know your expecting a fanfic competition like sumbit-my-chapter-and-get-placed but that's not what you're gonna get! ;)

What's happening is: someone who wants to write a Taylor fanfiction (a fanfiction is written from a fan's point of view, having something to do with Taylor. Being her friend, boyfriend, etc.). They will enter the comp, and be paired with an editor. This editor will apply as an editor, submit a short fanfic to prove they are capable of editing, and will help whichever competitor they're paired with revise, give them tips, etc. You will be submitting chapters as you go along.

There will be four judges other than myself. First come, first served. They will be scoring your fanfics along with me.

Rules:
-Be original!
-Judges, keep it fair!
-To apply, just say "I'll be a ___" (insert what you'd like to enter the comp as)
-First come, first served!
-The fanfic has to be a Taylor fanfic, and you'll have to meet her in it, that's my only rule for the writing.
-The editor can only edit, revise, and give suggestions, they CANNOT do the majority of the work.
-The writer must credit the editor where they did the work
-Take the job seriously!
-Keep it appropriate for younger Swifties
-The editor's application piece DOES NOT have to be a Taylor fanfic!
-It's ok if you want to put an original twist on a Taylor fanfiction :)
-Have fun!


Here's the scorecard (number is highest amount of points you can get):

Originality: 15
Wording: 15
Description: 15
Plot: 15
On-Topic: 10
Other: (this is just a space for some constructive criticism/feedback from judges)
Editor's Space: (some feedback from your editor)
Total Score: 70 (best score)
