For Writers and the Readers Who Love Them
This website is by a writer, for writers. It is about improving as a storyteller and writer, and teaching others to do the same. It is also about readers—because without readers there is no need for writers. And this website is about the promotion of anthrofiction as a genre. Of course we need a definition of anthrofiction.
Anthrofiction Network is family friendly. There is nothing here stronger than the equivalent of PG-13, and some stories may be suitable for young people.

There is a bug somewhere in the way my system handles time. What I want is to use UTC time, which is very close to GMT without daylight savings. My server has the right time, but every summer the PHP intrepreter on the server slips an hour. Therefore I’m tweaking the due date to July 22nd at 12:59:59 am. Ignore the 22nd business, the real due date is July 21st at 11:59:59 pm. The countdown is correct.
The first method I’m using to accomplish my goals for this site is to hold a quarterly writing contest. The current contest is:
Short Story Contest, Fall 2011
This contest’s judging period closed, but I’ve not yet announced the new contest period. Meanwhile, check out the stories from the past contests and see if I’ve posted the scores you and the panel of judges gave to them.
Time on this website is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and the current date and time are 2013-05-21 11:47:25.
I had been dreaming of creating a website for authors of anthrofiction to grow and improve, but didn’t do anything with that dream until Nathan Ryan was forced to cancel his anthro-story writing contest mid-season. Read more about the history of this website.
At the bottom of every page is a contact me link. I’ve worked hard to make this site smooth running and robust, but the site is still new and it is not all here. If you see anything you feel needs attention, or wish to make some comment about the site, feel free to send me a message.
