This is the whole point of Flipside! The contest section here is dedicated to improving our skills as writers, but remember that only Flipside members can host contests here. Keep in mind that hateful contest themes are prohibited, content is to be mild, and contests are to be fair and unbiased. All that aside, let's have fun with it! Please post your contests in the appropriate section.

Contest entrants are encouraged to write entries specifically for the contests. Please do not enter your treasured works in these contests, so that no one has to worry about copyright issues.
