    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?

      • il y a 1 mois

      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
