Are Podcastle and Psudopod also running Flash Contests?
« on: September 03, 2012, 07:08:46 PM »
This may seem like a silly question, but I was pretty sure that I heard on episodes of both the above podcasts that they were running a flash contest along side Escapepod (which I was able to find. http://forum.escapeartists.net/index.php?topic=6300.0), but I can't find any mention of it.

Is my googlefu weak, or did I just imagine that this was happening?

They are, but not concurrently with (or even, likely, very near) the EP contest. Dunno about Shaun/Alistair, but Dave mentioned it in an episode (last week's, I think).
"People commonly use the word 'procrastination' to describe what they do on the Internet. It seems to me too mild to describe what's happening as merely not-doing-work. We don't call it procrastination when someone gets drunk instead of working." - Paul Graham

So it will be happening some time in the future? Any idea where the rules are/will be posted?

You're looking at late 2012, early 2013 for entries. First will be horror, followed by fantasy - we're hosting the contests at different times this year.

There seemed to be a bit of fatigue running three back-to-back last time around.

I suspect the rules will look very similar to these.

The Pseudopod Flash contest will begin accepting entries sometime near the end of the EP contest. The rules will be similar, but not exactly the same.
I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Rules should be posted soon. (Just started a new job so I'm somewhat distracted)

Expect submissions to be starting in January. 500 word limit, if you want to get a head start :)

500, WOW. Thanks for that heads up, I will start thinking even more compact. :)
