I earned a BA in Professional Writing from the University of Oklahoma. I enjoy writing about all of the great things the library system has to offer. When not penning articles and press releases about valuable library services, I hang out with my two creative children. We love to find interesting free things to do around Oklahoma and visit libraries and book stores wherever we go.


Hello, I was curious as to if you needed to finish the entire fanfiction in the submission or if you could submit a prologue/the first chapter?

Could I do the drawing digitally??

Could someone submit both fan art and fanfiction? What happens to the art and to the literature after the person submits it, do they get it back? What happens to the winners art? Will there be first, second, and third place?

Hello! Thank you for these great questions.
There is 1st, 2nd, 3rd place. There will be categories like best digital art, etc. We ask to keep the art and writing for a short time, so we can scan it to possibly use it in the library magazine, on the website or Facebook. You do get it back.
You can definitely enter both fanart and fanfiction. If they go together that can help better your chance of winning in each category. If they are separate that is good too! If you have any other questions please email [email protected].

Does it have to be by tablet or can it be it by hand?
