Greetings ONC friends, We're nearing the end of this contest season, the Shortlist is finally here: https://www.wattpad.com/894500130-open-novella-contest-iii-shortlist Congratulations and we'll see you for the announcement of the winners! - The ONC Team
@OpenNovellaContest thanks for letting me know - and yes, you picked the right one. Though After All not making the shortlist had me weeping softly into my pillow!
@CrispinOTooleBateman We did indeed make the decision to put only one story per author on the Shortlist. That being said, in your case, all three of your stories were possible choices and we went with the one we liked the best :)
@opennovellacontest Yay! And thanks for all the hard work reading. I cannot imagine the load! One question though; out of my three longlisted entries only one made the shortlist. Was this a decision based on only allowing one final entry per author or did neither of my other entries merit making the cut? Thanks. :) looking forward to the final five!!
