I’ll definitely try to participate! I already have an idea!
I just have a question, when the instructions say: “You must have the copyright for the stories submitted”, does it mean that I need to have a legal document assigning me said copyright or just that the story is written by me?
The reason I ask is because I have none of my stories under legal documents of copyright and I know nothing about getting something like that at the moment.
Thanks in advance,
