As the contest only closed a few days ago, the judges have several thousand words to read through, digest, and then discuss.

You can realistically expect a few weeks at the soonest.

Thanks for your patience!


To be honest, I don't know: this is my first time participating...

Okay, different question, how long do these things take?


Be patient, please...

Have we found who has won yet?

I should have started this group, hehe.

there's another contest running now, but if you mean another Thousand Words contest, it'll have to wait until next year!

Can we please have another contest soon? I was bombarded with hard studying and finals the last few weeks I planned to write my story and would like a chance to try again. :twilightsheepish:

hi, yep, that's what the non-contest folders are for

Question. Will this group remain when the contest is over?

Or is there another 1k words group already?

T-rating is perfectly fine!

Ouch, no erotica? What about something with a T rating?

If you have no idea what's going on with this group, look here I guess. :twilightsmile:

How long is the construction of this group will take? So there will be more people to participate.

Well, this group appears to curate precisely the kind of stories I set out to write. I suppose I must join, then. :raritywink:
