I'm working on a story, but I'd need one more day, or at least a few more hours to finish it... I guess the deadline can't be extended just a little? :blushes:

Hi! I'm very excited about this, but I have a question about my entry. It's a poem set in Tolkien's universe, but in the hobbit or the Lord of the Rings proper. My piece pertains to the Silmarillion, the history Tolkien wrote about the early Ages of Middle-Earth. Can I still submit it for the contest? I think it counts as 'a poetic chant of the Elves and their prophecies.' :D

Hi, I'm a bit confused about this part of the rules: "Please include in your Artist's Comments how your entry relates to our theme." What exactly is the theme other than to write something that is set in the Lord of the rings world? I mean, should it specifically have something to do with Middle Earth as a continent or am I just overthinking here?^^;

I believe you may be over-thinking it ^-^

Just state that your piece is for #Authors-Club's contest, The Unexpected Journey ,and write like a brief synopsis of what it pertains to. Examples can be found throughout our contest gallery if you wish to have a look at how others approached it ^-^
