NEW CONTEST!!!! #writerswords

December 28, 2019

FREE WRITING

31

Hello! Welcome to this contest page :D
I think I will try something a little different this time, so here are the rules:
  • No explicit words or sexual content
  • Each person may enter up to 1 entry per category, for a total of 2 entries per person
  • Use the # in your title #writerswords and add the number of the CATEGORY after it (Ex. #writerswords1 for category 1)
  • The title of the poem must state the prompt # (Ex. A summers day (1) #writerswords2) 

Category 1 - Write a poem to one of the 4 prompts listed below, these can be a true story or fiction. This must be between 10-150 words.

Prompt 1 - Armada
Prompt 2 - Wither
Prompt 3 - Rogue
Prompt 4 - Compass

You may write to these however you like. I realize there isn’t much to go on, but that may give you some more free reign. If you want to write to more than one of these then go ahead, but you can only submit one for this contest.

The prompts for the 1st category are similar to something that me and @BurningMidnightOil will be co-hosting in January. So look forward to that! 

Category 2 - Write a short story, about one of the 3 prompts listed below. It can be a true story or fiction. You must follow the prompt, but you can exclude parts of the prompt if you want. There is no word limit. 

Prompt 1 - You’re caught in a storm. What type of storm is it and what is going on in your mind? What actions do you take to survive?

Prompt 2 - There’s a forest. When people enter this forest, they don’t return. You now enter the forest. What happens to you?

Prompt 3 - You wake up and find yourself in a casino. The door out of the casino won’t open unless you obtain a million dollars...and you have to gamble to get the money. What games do you play and how do you make your way out. What’s waiting for you on the other side of those doors?

Deadline - Sunday, December 22
