So, now that the first round is over, what happens now? I get that we wait for the results, but does anybody have a timescale on those? Also, how many from each heat go through to round 2?

This is fun!

From the main page (http://www.nycmidnight.com/Competitions/SSC/Challenge.htm):

"The judges choose a top 5 in each heat to advance to the 2nd Round (March 23-26, 2017)..."

In my experience, sometimes you won't find out if you made it until only a few days before (so, ~March 20). Gets frustrating when you were holding off on that weekend's plans! :)

Literally 'dying' to know if I get to write again for this contest.
 
The first round was incredible. I loved the challenge of writing this way; time restriction, specific genre/subject/character. I think it actually kept me more focused! :)
 
I was in Heat 77 - Political Satire/School Detention/ A Model
 
My story was titled : Own It Your Way
 
(I'll try to remember to upload it later)
