fictional presidents?Thread Started October 23 at 1:24AM
If I use just first names, but they are similar to real life former presidents, am I cool? I HAVE A STORY ABOUT 4 FORMER PRESIDENT AND ONE CHARACTER THAT RAN, BUT DID NOT MAKE IT.

The contest rules are: There are requirements for length. Minimum length 1600 words. Maximum Length 2400 words. All Presidents must be former and fictional and they must be hanging out, doing something casual.
The contest sponsor should answer this, but since there is no reply I interpret the language in these rules to mean that you make up a story that makes it clear a number of former presidents are 'hanging out' and that you make those former presidents fictitious, not alluding to actual former presidents.
I hope the sponsor steps in to clarify, but once the contest is announced, it's my understanding the rules can't be changed.
