    Hello, I've submitted my entry #26 (I've mistaken my entry as number 25, but mine's 26). I hope you'll enjoy reading my story that is inspired by Filipino Ghosts which are popular in the Philippine Folklore.

    Hey there! What do you mean by "The author's name will be included anywhere we use it." ? Does it mean that whoever posted the story, their name will be used? Or does it mean the name of the contest holder will be used?

    " no too specific country's words " specific as what?

      • 2 months ago

      it means the story should be country neutral, that is, words/phrases/expressions that are specifically used in a given country/language but not in others should be avoided. for example, I am from India, but I should not be using India-specific words/phrases/expressions in my native tongue
