Hello everyone! Welcome to my fifth time hosting a writing contest on Gaia, however this time it's different!
I've had an open writing contest for gay rights. An essay contest.
Adopted a poetry contest. Run an alliteration and rhyme poetry competition and am currently hosting "Simple Sentiments".
So what do I want now?
Now, just in time before NaNoWriMo I've decided to do prose. I'm focusing on a short scene, either written for the contest or taken out of the middle of another work you've written. The scene is to be neither to be a start to a story, nor a conclusion.
When it comes to judging I'm focusing on Characters, Communication and Culture.
Of course, everything else is always adored. Whilst it ought be short I'm looking for a thick slab of text, interesting and involved.
What does "short" mean? Not a great deal! You use as many words as you need for a "short" section of your story! Or as few a words you need to capture the scene you wish to enter.
Your section should require no explaination before or afterwards.
Everyone likes prizes, 'course.
On offer we have not a great deal, sorry.
At the time being -
1st - 8,000g
2nd - 5,000g
3rd - 2,000g
This will rise over the next month with any other funds I generate.
Any donations will also go straight into the prize pool!
A great Thankyou to the Writers Workshop and Contest Charity Foundation. (WW&CC), for a 10K grant! Please check out their links below!
