Welcome to the new Short Stories contest collection topic! Since we have to log out to look at the previous SS Contest History, not to mention this older one here, I think it's time for an updatable topic. Thank you Senjo for running the old topic! Most of the information here was gathered, edited, and commented on by her. Old forum links will be marked with a lovely little *, so be warned!
Please DO NOT ask when the next library contest is going to be. Many contests require brand new epics, so the staff do not wish to share contest dates and details until the topic is posted.
NEW CONTEST INFO WILL BE ADDED once all Contest History and Library Collection topics are public. I can only juggle so much at once, but no worries, it'll be in this week. If anyone can give me links to contests between the Library Summer Olympics and the old forum going down, please please do so. I think it would be SSC 6 and 7? I already have the information for the contests held on the new forum. Thanks!
