<h3>Monkey Island Fan Fiction Rules!</h3>

<ul>
Entries can be of any length from a page up to full chapter length. This can be something that is expanded from any of the Monkey Island games, or written about a time in Guybrush's life that is not written in the games (such as pre-secret monkey island.) Use your imagination and try to recreate the style of Ron Gilbert's stories.

If you are expanding on a game, please state the game. Also remember plagiarism is a no no. (This is using someone else's words as your own.) All entries which are plagarized will be disqualified. Likewise, if you see an entry that has been copied, please email me with the source.

Think up a good, fitting title for your writing. This is how your story will be known as.

The deadline is June 10, 2000. The sooner you get your entry in, the more judges will get to critique it.

When submitting your entry, please simply cut and paste it into an email message. Do not send attachments. (If your entry is too long to paste into a message, please email me privately to arrange submission) At the top of your entry, please state the following: name, age (if under 18), length of story, title, email address and snail mail address (if you are chosen for a prize). Only the title of the story will appear on the page until the judging is complete. Once the winners have been announced, your name, title and email address (and age if under 18) will appear on this page.

Prizes for the contest are as follows: 1st place: free escapemi.com sub domain to do with as you please. Unlimited space, bandwidth, and everything else. Great to start a personal or fan web site! 2nd & 3rd place: a free POP3 e-mail address (@escapemi.com.)
[/list]

Good luck to all! Keep checking EscapeMI.com's news as entries are added. If you have any additional questions that it doesn't address here, please email me at zeroxcape@escapemi.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
