This Age is Different…
The Age of Edward Anonymous Contest will feature quality stories throughout various historical eras, ranging from ancient times up until the modern era and beyond. This includes future eras. The only time period not acceptable for entry is anything within fifteen years of TODAY.
Unlike previous years, 2013 Age of Edward will be an anonymous contest. Please take care not to reveal your entry as doing so is grounds for disqualification. There will also be a banner contest - so authors, recruit an artist!

Historical Eras and Themes
The submissions can be from any point of view, although they must be in the context of the theme you choose and must feature Edward. They can take place in any historical era from pre-history to the 1990′s, so long as the story is historically accurate. If you choose to write about a future Edward, it must have a distinctly futuristic vibe.Babylonian Empire EdwardPersian Empire EdwardChinese Empire EdwardEgyptian Empire EdwardAncient Greek Empire EdwardRoman Empire EdwardCeltic EdwardViking EdwardBarbarian EdwardPope EdwardKing EdwardMedieval EdwardCrusader EdwardBraveheart EdwardProtestant Reformation EdwardRenaissance EdwardColonial EdwardElizabethan EdwardEnlightenment EdwardAmerican Revolution EdwardFrench Revolution EdwardWild West EdwardAmerican Civil War EdwardNapoleanic EdwardVictorian EdwardWWI EdwardRussian Revolution Edward20′s Gangster EdwardAmerican Great Depression EdwardIrish Immigrant in United States EdwardItalian Immigrant in United States EdwardWWII Edward50′s Edward60′s Edward70′s Edward80′s EdwardFUTURE Edward
