Can Poetry and Fiction have their own Writing Challange?

No, they can't. Even if it may seem unfair to compare one against another, they are actually each judged on their own merit against the judging criteria. It has been brought up before, and besides the fact they are not judged against another piece, the judges enjoy having the variety. If the Challen...

Where did that thread on.... go? Where are some of my posts?

After a certain amount of time, if a thread hasn't been replied to (unless made sticky) it will be deleted from the forum.

Be sure to save any posts you make that you want archives of for yourself, especially if it's an article, story or poem that you typed directly to the forum :)

What is Hinting or Hint Day?

I made a separate FAQ for hint day, since some people don't realize it's connected to the weekly challenge :) What is hinting? There are a few days lag time between when the entries are finished being judged, and when the results are displayed and names are put on entries. During this time we play a...

There are some of the basics (if anybody knows of others, please PM me and I'll add them) All Rights: If you offer a publisher all rights, then they will own the article or manuscript.

Is everything I post on FW is considered “published"?

Is it true that everything I post on FW is considered “published”? Yes. Anything that appears on a public site, whether that be a blog, a public message board, the FaithWriters site, or something else, is considered published, in the strictest sense of the word.

The Word Count Crises

The word count for the weekly challenge is from 150-750 words. Your article will be removed from the challenge if it does not fall within those guidelines. As long as you do a word count through a program like MS Word, it will be OK. A SLIGHT cushion is given on the word count, but it is only to all...

What's with the pencils?

It's just a fun thing FW gave us to help keep track of our number of posts. For each 50 to 100 posts, the pencil grows one hole. At 500 posts the pencil turns orange and stops growing. Moderators have green or black pencils. You may hear us joke about “pencil envy”. ;) And Deb (breathfreshair) has a...
