Since the kontestants get to invent amazing nicknames, naturally the judges want one, too! Plus it lets them vote with more freedom. To recognize our wonderful judges and know the vote is legit, here is a list of the nicknames they have chosen:
Creature of the Sea
Outer Space Potato Man
Nodody of Consequence
Oh at All
Brimful of Asha
Vanellope von Schweetz
Lumpy Space Author
It's fantastically fun to be silly sometimes and our judges had a blast choosing these names. We hope you'll have fun choosing an inventive nickname for your story!
And speaking of fun!
The chance to chat with our judges is Friday, May 12th and Tuesday, May 23rd!
Join us on the hashtag #QKChat at 3:00 pm EST and 8:00 pm EST to ask questions about the contest and writing in general. You can ask writers who are further along on their journey what submission is like or how they promo or what they said during their call. Just don't ask them to reveal their secret nickname. :-)
Remember submission for Query Kombat is just a few days away on Wednesday, May 17th.
