Modeled after Giovanni Boccaccio's classic from the 14th Century, this collection similarly brought 100+ short stories to Wattpad readers. The original's premise was simple: ten individuals entertained themselves over a span of ten days by telling a different tale while hiding out from the plague outside of Florence. Each day had a theme, leading to an end product that was both cohesive, yet unique. This Wattpad collection aimed to give readers a similar experience. The Decameron 2.0 originally appeared on Wattpad in 2016, but was moved to draft form when I joined the Futures Program. Now that the FP is gone, this collection can be reposted. Participation was by invitation only with each "day" having a Group Leader, otherwise known as the King or Queen for the day. They had the great responsibility to not only pick the other nine authors in their team, but also the theme that they wrote around. Awards were given to the best story within each theme and the overall best story from all the shorts, each chosen by Guest Judges. Readers also had a chance to vote for their favorite to get a special Readers' Award. Stories are between 1,500 and 3,000 words each. They are the sole properties of their respective authors.
