@onyefrankie The minimum episode and word count (10 episodes of at least 500 words apiece, for a total of 5,000 words) were put in place to help us gauge whether authors have the ability to follow through on their work and finish it at some point. We also want to make sure we're publishing stories that are going to be a bit longer, rather than just short stories, as it would be difficult for a very short story to do well on Premium. If your story falls below 5,000 words once it is completed, it will be too short for us to consider as an official submission.
@Quinn_Li We are planning on doing many more Writers Camps in the future at a bunch of different times throughout the year, so if this particular submission period doesn't work for you, don't worry! There will be more opportunities to participate in the near future.
