  1. On the FAQ page there is Q: Can the story be part of a larger arc A: As long as the story stands on its own as a complete work, yes.

    But for this challenge, it has to be part of a larger arc and often that means it wouldn’t stand on its own. So, is that Q&A not correct for this challenge or am I missing something

    Are prequels allowed as well?

  3. Would a sequel/final part of a series be allowed? I have a series of three novellas published with a planned fourth novella/novel length work to complete the series.

    Best, The Nut.

  4. Is there any length requirements for the previous work?
    I have an idea of a couple to use but they’re about 500ish word one shots
