YC 124 New Eden Capsuleer's Writing Contest

Good morning,

I would like to submit the following for consideration under 4.News:

This featured a number of live automated news broadcasts which were also compiled into two news pieces following the outcome of each event:

News piece 1

Live broadcast [Hull attack]
News piece 2

This featured automated code at evepandora.com which reads ZKB and other factors to auto-initiate scripted live news reports at the time (broadcast as it happened on twitch) and is the first of what will be many as evepandora covers live events.


I would like to submit a poem that I wrote after the fall of Farthest Shore, back in September.


OP Updated with all entries to date!

This is the last week for submissions so I am looking forward to more creativity !

I would like to submit this to the Poetry category:

It may initially appear to be prose, however it is inspired by some famous poems I revisited today, and it includes normal poetic elements such as rhyming.


I would like to submit [YC124 NECWC] Impossible Love, the new bestseller by Chialette Ahubbert is out! to the News Category!


Does that ‘prior work’ deadline require it to be written after that timeline, or is it sufficient that it is published to New Eden’s public after that date?

As I recall, it’s always been that if something was written but unpublished, it is still eligible.

So if you wrote something in January YC 123, but only published it in June YC123 then it’s fine.

Hrm. In that case, I’m removing the access restrictions on a particular entry in my personal storage, as it no longer serves any operational security to keep it private.

I’m entering Walking in Myth, an observational piece on humanity, nationalism, war and a nameless Floseswin city to the contest. I am somewhat unsure which of the four categories it fits best with, so the safest option would be Category Four: Opinion Piece.

Roughly eight thousand words, landing in Short Story classification in length. Recorded in YC122, unpublished to the New Eden public until right now. If that’s not within the rules, let me know.

Edit: There are a few minor mentions of things of ‘improper’ natures, mature subjects and city life, adult audiences only.

For reasons we discussed, i am allowing this in the contest as an “Audit Entry.” Because it doesn’t quite fit within the rules as intended, it is not eligible for a main prize but it will be considered and rated by the judges. Thank you for entering!
