    I'm very excited about this contest! I'm already starting my story. Thank you!

  • Marjorie Dube, June 12, 2018 Reply

    I would love to participate

  • Tikah, June 13, 2018 Reply

    Is there any rules for how much chapter in our story?

    • Marta, June 13, 2018 Reply

      No, there is no lower/upper limit.

  • Rima El-Boustani, June 17, 2018 Reply

    in terms of music are we submitting a story based on a piece of music or a song based on someones music?

    • Marta, June 18, 2018 Reply

      You have to submit a piece of fan fiction and assign it to one of the categories (fandoms) that matches your entry.

      For example, if you write a story about One Direction, then you choose 'Music' as your category, as One Direction was a music band. If you write on Sherlock Holmes, you choose 'Books' and so on.

    *cries* I have been waiting for this contest my whole life.

  • Ansha, June 20, 2018 Reply

    Hi! If the first chapter of the fanfiction is already posted on Sweek (as part of flash fiction), but the rest of the chapters aren't, can the fanfiction still be entered?

    • Marta, June 21, 2018 Reply

      Your fanficion entry has to be completed which means that if it's not finished and uploaded as a whole on Sweek, it will not be taking part in the contest.

  • Ansha, June 20, 2018 Reply

    And do all chapters have to be posted at once, or can I post one chapter at a time over the period of competition?

    • Marta, June 21, 2018 Reply

      It is up to you, whatever you think it's better for your readers. :)

  • Larah Ferreira, June 20, 2018 Reply

    I need to put the name of the fandom or just #SweekFanFicMusic? For example, I want to write a fanfic about BTS. So I need to tag #SweekFanFicARMY?

    • Marta, June 21, 2018 Reply

      You can only use the tags and fandoms we mentioned in the post. If there is no category that matches your fanfiction, please classify it as 'other' and just write a tag #SweekFanFic.

  • Uchechi, June 23, 2018 Reply

    Please, how many words is the contest?

    • Sweek team, June 26, 2018 Reply

      Hi, there is no word limit for this writing contest :)

  • Shalvina Lokhande, June 28, 2018 Reply

    What if story is totally different and not connected to any category mentioned above. A total different fictional story. Will my story be in competition?

    • Marta, June 28, 2018 Reply

      If it is still fan fiction, please just write a tag: #SweekFanFic what classify it as 'other'. Please do not enter this contest if your story is not an example of flash fiction.

  • TheServalWriter, June 30, 2018 Reply

    Ooh, interesting! I'm working on a series and I'd love to vote for y'all!

  • OIrineMY, July 14, 2018 Reply

    Is there a limit to the number of participants in the story?

    • the Sweek team, July 19, 2018 Reply

      Hey Olrine,
      Sorry for the late reply, and no. Everyone can participate, there are no set amount of entries! So tell all your friends ;)

  • Josh, July 15, 2018 Reply

    What a great idea for a contest! I hope people read the story that I just posted for it. :)

  • Neha Varadharajan, July 24, 2018 Reply

    Hi there,
    Can we edit the story as many times as we like before the deadline? Can we do that during the voting phase too? If
    I am the lucky person to be shortlisted that is.

    • the Sweek team, July 24, 2018 Reply

      Hey Neha,

      Yes, you're free to edit your story in any way you see fit before the deadline. Once the submission phase is over however, any further changes will not be taken into consideration by the judges.

  • Neha Varadharajan, July 29, 2018 Reply

    Hey there,
    Can the entry be a novella or book- length story?

    • the Sweek team, July 30, 2018 Reply

      Hi Neha,

      There's no word limit for this contest, so go nuts!

  • Joanne, August 6, 2018 Reply

    I have this book called The Beauty Within You, which is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but in modern day fiction. Am I free to enter that story in? Please answer ASAP.

    • the Sweek team, August 6, 2018 Reply

      Yes. Be aware however, that your chances of winning will increase considerably if you introduce some element of originality to the plot, and not just the setting.

  • junesonata, August 14, 2018 Reply

    Whoaaaaa. I still can submit my fics, right?

    • the Sweek team, August 14, 2018 Reply

      Absolutely, we're accepting submissions until the 26th!

      • junesonata, August 30, 2018 Reply

        Haha sadly, i couldn't submit it on time. Guess i just have to patiently waiting for the next competition :")
