A contest!!!

January 20, 2020


Hi, fellow writers!
I've been seeing a lot of contests, (and am doing a couple), and I think they are great opportunities to see what writers like us have to offer. Consequently, here's a contest! There's a prompt for creative fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction; that way there is something for every writer (hopefully!!)

Prompt One: in a galaxy far, far away
Write a story about how the world your character currently lives on is nearing its breaking point. While the rest of the world rushes to evacuate everyone to a space pod with a destination of a livable planet, your character remains behind bars, left to die with the rest of the world’s prisoners. The kicker? They’re wrongfully convicted.
  • Under 2000 words
  • Use #scifi
Prompt Two: On the subject of imagination
Write a poem imagining you are between dreams. Stretch your imaginations beyond the world of logic and fact and imagine that you can inhabit “in between” spaces. What would it feel like? What would you do? Or not do?
  • This submission can be in any form of poetry you choose. (haiku, free-verse, limerick, etc.
  • Use #inbetween
Prompt Three: Let it burn
If you could throw five items into the fire, what would they be and why? To be clear, by throwing them in this fire, there would be no trace of them left anywhere, even if it’s something on the Internet or a memory. This is a very powerful fire. What would the consequences be?
  • Under 1000 words
  • Use #letitburn
