Elftown Prose Contest – Secret Life of your Neighbour

Welcome to the third Elftown Prose Contest. If you can't follow the rhythm of poetry, or just like writing stories, this is the contest for you!


Theme: Secret Life of your Neighbour
Have you ever thought your neighbour might be a witch or perhaps an alien? Well now's your chance to prove it! Write a story about the secret life your creature neighbour leads. They can be any fictional creature you can think of.



1 - The story MUST be written by you. If anyone is found to be stealing someone else's work they will be disqualified from this and all future official Prose contests.
2 - No fan-fiction in this contest. We accept that you may be inspired somewhere, but if you write a story with a land called Marmia containing Baslam the lion, it's not going to cut it with us. Original work here please.
3 – The story must be no less than 500 words and no more than 3000.
4 – No pornography or excessive violence please. Use your common sense as to what would be acceptable and what not, but the judges' decision in this matter is final.
5 - Quality restrictions. If you want us to put effort into reading the story, put effort into writing it. Stories with exceptionally bad spelling and/or grammar will be disqualified at the judges' discretion. Note: We realise that typos are one thing, and laziness quite another. We will distinguish between the two here.

The stories will be judged on:
a) How well your story fits the theme.
b) Creativity, originality and plot.
c) Format - Proper paragraphs, spelling, grammar, use of vocabulary etc.

The stories will be judged by:
- [Elegy - gone]
- [Blaithin]
- [Linderel]
