Categories:

Comedy:

Pieces should be no more than 3000 words. Find something hilarious that with at least a hint of romance of involving love of some kind. It can be about ANYTHING that happens with Eve, be creative but remember to keep it PG-13.


Non-Comedy:

Pieces should be no more than 3000 words and can be about anything with connotations of love or romance within EvE. Again, this is open to interpretation but must be PG-13.


Short Story:

Submissions for this category have a hard limit of 1500 words or under and can be about anything eve related.


Judging:

ATYH features judges from within the EvE universe as well as a few who've had minimal to no experience with EvE. While entries should be EvE related, we encourage writers to strive for cohesive stories and good writing without relying too heavily on game mechanics.

Judges will be distributed between the three categories as follows:

Comedy:

Liara Enith

Vincent Pryce

Xepharious Wryn
