UPDATE: There was an error in the rules previously posted for the Blizzard Global Writing Contest. The prior version of the rules incorrectly excluded residents of the Australian states of Queensland and Victoria, and the Australian Capital Territory.
The rules have been corrected to include residents of those locations, and contestants from those locations will gain an additional 5 days to submit their entries to the contest, to account for time lost due to the error.
You sit at your typewriter, hands frozen in fear by the sound of crumpling paper from the darkness behind you. Shadows of broken quills encroach on your sight's periphery but slither out of view when you turn toward them. Summoning your courage, you lash out at the apparitions before they fade, only to awaken in a cold sweat with pencils and pens gripped tight in your clenched fists. You know what this dream foretells: the 2011 Global Writing Contest is upon us!
Enter a short story for the chance to win a free trip to Blizzard's headquarters in Southern California! This contest is open to entrants from around the world and will be judged by Blizzard's very own writers and masters of lore. For more information, head to the contest page!
