Sir, I have updated his access permissions. You should now be able to read Weils’ drivellings (and he is seriously going to pay for this!).
Your humble servant,
Eloise.

Please forgive this silly procrastinator who writes stuff only at deadline, but here it is: Helen - for the prose section.

I hope you like it. Or hate it. Or hate me for what I did…
Anyway, here goes nothing!

I may not be able to attend this event (possible administrative work to do, urg ) Could it be a problem ?

I suggest contacting Directrix Aspenstar directly, perhaps arranging for some proxy to collect any prizes you might win.

I doubt the event will be rearranged because some people can’t make it.

will do, thanks, but, just to be clear, I was not asking about rearranging the event.

It is not necessary to attend to win. I’ll send prizes and a notice to any recipients who, sadly, were unable to make it for whatever reason.

Congratulations to all of the writers! I very much enjoyed reading the very diverse collection of entries. The level of literary, poetic and academic sophistication of the works was impressive, and sometimes surprising. Thank you for sharing your creations with us.

Looking forward to the next year competition! Lots of great quality was present here this year despite of the rankings.

Every year the writing gets better, truly. As a former contestant and now a judge, I can state firmly that the stuff I put up was shamed by everyone this year! It’s so encouraging, and an inspiration to try harder. Thank you to everyone.

@Mika_Firestorm , take care of the puppy!

Congrats to the winners and thanks to the host and judges.

I guess once again I’ve been good but not good enough, I’m starting to seriously dislike always placing myself this way. However, I don’t think it will happen again as I doubt I’ll have anything to write about for any new contest and for next year ones.

Anyway, congrats again, hope you had plenty of fun in your party yesterday.

Bah, writing contests and rankings of art and endeavors. People try to make rankings as fair and representative they possibly can. But putting a numerical score on a very analog spectrum of ideas can’t not but be kind of arbitrary. Put your fingers on datapad, Miyoshi friend. People read, enjoy, and appreciate. Mostly silently and without comment, because just reading is what readers do.
