Hey thanks! I'm glad someone's reading them at least :P

How often do the contest winner's get uploaded to FF site? Struggling to find them is all ;)

Oh that's a fight that @xiagan and me have...

We've submitted all the winners until August last year but there are still a few to be published. I would have done them all until now if they published one every 2 weeks, or something (at least!), until we caught up with the real month.

Another thing I've noticed is that not all of them are classified as "writing contest" (as the category in the menu when you're clicking on articles), so like you said, the 2014/2015 ones are quite hard to find :-\
(tagged there we have Mazes from Aug 2013 and then only Fairy Tales published Apr 16, a middle one from the 2015 winners)

I barely know Twitter, but I recovered my account and followed the writing contest account. Great starter posts!
