FANDOM


The list of all the writing contests run by the Fanonbenders.

Criteria

Plot – how interesting the submission was, and how well the story flows. Are actions forced, and is it believable?
Technicals – the technical writing of the author, usually marked as the spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
Organisation – how well the chapter/one-shot was organised. Is it easy to read? How complex is the language; can we jump into this chapter or story and not feel confused/out of our depth?
Writing – focussing less on technicals, how is the general writing? Are words used in the correct context, and does it flow? Are there enough descriptors, or does the language repeat itself?
