Here ye, here ye!

There will be a writing contest starting May 1. This contest will be a big one with 3 different categories. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 submissions in each category for a total of 9 prizes. The 3 categories are:

--Character Biography: Unlike the last contest, entries will not be writing their own bios. This will be explained at a later date.

--Case Introduction: Entries will write a case introduction with the same parameters required in Sleuth Noir. It will be the intent that these intros will be submitted after the contest is over for Noir cases.

--Freestyle: The parameters of this section will be described later. The good news here is that bad spelling and poor grammar will not hurt any entry. This one is just for raw originality.

Right now, I am NOT looking for entries. I am looking for judges. I will be a judge, and 10 more are needed.

Important: If you elect to be a judge, you may not be a contestant.
The following judge specialists are needed:
--Expert spellers. 2 needed.
--Grammar experts. 2 needed.
--Case Intro syntax expert. 1 needed.
--Creativity judges. 5 needed.

Judges must be active members. Judges must be available between today and through May. The latter part of May will be the busiest.

For those that will want to be contestants, you will have an opportunity in April to sign up. A contestant may enter any 1, 2, or all 3 categories. Anyone can enter (except judges). BUT, only subscribers will be prize eligible. If you want to subscribe for the first time and get a discount, please see Lady Jas about getting a Sidekick coupon.

Hopefully, this event will incorporate a large amount of active sleuths. The more involved, the more fun it will be. Let's unite and make happy memories!
