FREE WRITING

29



contest time!

i have been very fortunate to have such a pleasant and wonderful time on wtw, which includes the interactions with all 120+ of you! thank you for taking time to read my stuff, and for always being patient with my mistakes.

so, in light of all the free time i have now (ofc i don't focus on my classes), i'm gonna hold a contest. i know there are a lot more, well-crafted contests held by dedicated users, so its okay if you don't want to join in.

but in case you do decide to invest in this trainwreck, here are the prompts.



1) MACABRE PROSE [ 10 entries ] :

i am majoring in forensics, and that aspect of science is pretty unexplored in the prose and poetry community, in my opinion. so, dear writers, craft a piece filled with the most disturbing situations and details you can muster. however, keep in mind to not transgress the guidelines put forward by wtw.

challenge yourselves to make it as horrifying as possible. make me want to throw up, if you will.

entries in prose [word limit 0-300].



2) REVENGE POETRY [ 10 entries ] :

we always read about revenge stories, and how the narrator/ main character formulates their ultimate vengeance. well, let's switch it up a bit. write a poem in the perspective of a person who is about to commit treachery. tell me about their motivations, their method, and how they anticipate it to end.

you can decide the length, style and form, i'm not too particular about that.



PRIZES

1) FIRST PLACE : in both poetry and prose :
     ~ a detailed review on their winning piece
     ~ three likes on any pieces of their choice
     ~ three comments on any pieces of their choice

2) SECOND PLACE : in both poetry and prose :   
     ~ a detailed review on their winning piece
     ~ two likes on any pieces of their choice
     ~ two comments on any pieces of their choice




now i do not claim to be an expert in poetry or prose, but i will be judging based on grammar, structure, plot (even in the poetry prompt), language, and tone.


please note that the submission period ends on 21st April, 2020, 12:00 am (GMT +4). it also ends immediately when the slots have been completely filled. i do apologize for not being able to take more than 10 entries each, and while i have free time, i do not have the mental capacity for any more than 20 lol.


please copy-paste the link to your piece in the comment section below, and specify which prompt you are writing for. please include #agustdv2020 in the title of your work, so it's easier for me to locate it. should you choose to un-publish your piece or make changes, do let me. 


and finally, you may only select one prompt. i would love to see some of you write for both, but i want a diverse group of work to read. 


dear writers, i hope to read some very interesting pieces, which is really not such a tall order, since all of you are immensely talented. if you happen to have any questions, just ask in the comments section, and i will re-upload this piece answering it, so keep an eye out for that. good luck!

    Soooo I decided to extend it for two more weeks. Which is to say, on 4th May, 12:00 am (GMT 4+), I will close the contest finally. I just want the entries to be filled by then, and if they aren't, we'll go with whatever pieces are still available by then.

    Results shall be published as soon as I finish with them, so please be on the lookout for that!

    ALSO YOU CAN WRITE FOR BOTH PROMPTS IF YOU WISH!!

    I'll make myself sick doing research before I try to even do anything to you. Unless I choose the other prompt. Or maybe I'll write something for both and enter the better piece. Either way, I'll definitely try to participate!
