    Hey there! What do you mean by "The author's name will be included anywhere we use it." ? Does it mean that whoever posted the story, their name will be used? Or does it mean the name of the contest holder will be used?

      it means the story should be country neutral, that is, words/phrases/expressions that are specifically used in a given country/language but not in others should be avoided. for example, I am from India, but I should not be using India-specific words/phrases/expressions in my native tongue
