The stories will be posted online to be viewed by our online community, and a poll will be taken to bring the total submissions down to 3, which will then be judged by members of the International Brain Transplant Committee, and myself. There are no rules on what you can and can’t write about.
There is no censorship, except for author names upon request
Don’t Be afraid to submit your work! You retain full rights of your story. We are just silly people who want to share a good story

To start it off, I’m gonna get us in the short story writing mood by posting one of my own short stories from a while back.
