Welcome back, Age of Edward fans! We're bringing the #1 Twific contest back for 2017, so get your pencils sharpened, typing fingers stretched, and research materials ready!
The Age of Edward Contest will feature stories throughout various historical/futuristic eras, the only time period not acceptable for entry is anything after the year 2000, with the exception of Future Edward. If you choose to write about a future Edward, it must have a distinctly futuristic vibe. Submissions can be from any point of view, though they must be in context of the time period and must feature Edward.
