Announcing the Fairy Tales Contest!

So, Episode announced a new contest. What do you think?

Fairy Tales are a part of many cultures, and we want to see your takes on their stories!

The specific guidelines are:

  1. Your story must have “FT” in the title. Stories without “FT” in the title will be disqualified. While not required for entry it is strongly recommended that you format your title like this - “FT: The Golden Egg” This will help readers search for your story and identify it as a contest entry.
  2. You must completely fill out this Google form to enter. In the event that you send the wrong link or make a mistake on your entry form, please send your story title, email address and the correct link in a support ticket so we can update your entry.
  3. Your story can be in any genre, but should feature characters and/or plotting from a Fairy Tale of your choosing.

What Qualifies as a Fairy Tale? Any culture’s fictional folk tales will be classified as a fairy tale for this contest. Stories should be adaptations that use identifiable characters or plotlines, but can be molded into original works.

Authors must adapt stories and characters in the public domain, which are free for all to use due to their lack of copyright status. While most fairy tales’ concepts and characters are in the Public Domain, meaning you can write about them without it being plagiarism or infringing on someone’s copyright, the specific characterizations and unique plot elements of recent retellings (ex: Disney movies, Once Upon A Time, Grimm) are not allowed to be used, and will be considered plagiarism. For more about what’s in the public domain, and what isn’t, check this out!

We encourage you to put original spins onto these stories to make them your own!

Examples of possible plots:

  • A retelling of the Ant and the Grasshopper, about two very different roommates
  • Hansel and Gretel find themselves tempted by a celebrity’s ornate mansion
  • A baker’s masterwork turns out to be a living Gingerbread man

I’m just going to share the important parts.
