Are you prepared for the battle of your literary life? Sharpen your pencils, refill your ink, and stretch that wrist, because Iron Fic Naka-Kon is back! Join us for one grueling hour of creative writing tension. Can you make your fanfiction stand above the rest and earn the title of Iron Fic Champion?
- Writers will be given a prompt, after which they will have one hour to write their submission.
- Entries must be fanfiction based on works of Japanese origin. Anime, manga, video game, and band (J-rock/J-pop) fandoms are all acceptable. Original characters are allowed, but not completely original settings.
- Pens and paper will be available, but you may bring your own.
- Electronic entries are also acceptable! You may bring a tablet/laptop to use and submit your work at the end of contest time. Please be prepared with a USB drive as Wi-Fi may not be available in the contest room to email your work.
- While the writing time is only 1 hour, the contest appears on the schedule as 1.5 hours to account for handing out materials, presenting this year’s prompt, and collecting entries.
- Winners will be announced and receive their prizes during Closing Ceremonies.
- Naka-Kon reserves the right to limit entries at the judges’ discretion to ensure sufficient time to read and evaluate each entry.
