DATE EXTENSION TO APRIL 15

a contest?!

March 21, 2019

FREE WRITING

21

hi i'm holding a contest! i honestly don't know if anyone will even participate, but i am in a reading-the-lovely-stuff-that-you-guys-write mood, so here we are. also, i've somehow convinced myself that i am qualified to judge something! so. a CONTEST! 


prompts: 
i. the only thing
ii. dreams

you can interpret the prompts in any way you want. you can also combine them, if you'd like. there will be winners for the contest as a whole, pulling from both prompts, as they are starting points, not necessities. i do not mind if you incorporate the prompt very loosely or even if you are just inspired by them (you can also follow them very specifically - anything goes). i'm looking for the quality of writing, not how well you can follow prompts that i may or may not have based on sufjan stevens songs. 


rules: 
not much! i'll except any kind of creative writing: poems, short stories, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, etc.
please use the hashtag #ghostlycontest in the title of your piece.
no word limit.
deadline is april 1st.  
leave a comment linking your piece if you are submitting it. 


prizes:
1st: 
    1 follow
    3 detailed peer reviews (your choice) 
    7 likes 
    7 comments
2nd:
    2 detailed peer reviews (your choice) 
    5 likes 
    5 comments
3rd*:
    1 detailed peer review (your choice)
    3 likes
    3 comments 

honorable mentions will also be recognized.
i will also explain why all the pieces that won, won. 


okay! i think 4 weeks is a reasonable time to write something, but let me know if it is too short/too long/too something since i am horrible at judging whether things are reasonable or not. feel free to ask all the questions in the comments as i'm sure i have left out a bajillion things. 

have a lovely day!! happy writing!! yay!! 
 
*if there is a need for it!
