Our friends at Becoming Writer became one-year-old today!
Becoming Writer is a membership community that turns aspiring writers into daily writers. We are so excited for them that they’ve reached their first anniversary.
In celebration of their one year anniversary, we are hosting a contest with them. The top story will win a $300 cash prize, and the two runners-up will get $100 each.
But there is more to this contest than cash prizes.
In this contest, you don’t just enter your story and wait to hear back. After entering the contest, you get to workshop your story and get feedback on it from an amazing community of other writers. Also, EVERY writer that enters will be published.
Even if you don’t win, you will get great feedback on your writing and finish the contest with a published piece of work you can be proud of.
To enter the Anniversary Writing Contest, we ask you write a new story up to 1,500 words long based on the contest theme, Creatives: your story’s main character must be a creative—they may be a writer, a painter, or a poet, but they must be some kind of a creative.
After you finish your story, you will get a chance to workshop it within the Becoming Writer community, getting personalized feedback to help you make your story better.
After making your story as good as it can be based on the feedback you received, you can you submit your story to our contest judges.
Our esteemed judges will then choose two runners-up, who will each win a $100 cash prize, and one grand prize winning story, that will win $300 and featured publication here on The Write Practice.
But the twist is that ALL the writers who submit a story to the contest, not just the winning story, will be published if they choose. This is your chance to show off your best work!
We hope you’ll join us.
Where are all the stories published?
Jeff Elkins says
All of the stories will be published on site specifically established for the contest. Short Fiction Break will link to and advertise the site. (This is our second year doing the contest. The first year we did this same thing, and the stories were read by thousands of readers.) The top ten stories will be published directly on Short Fiction Break in the month of February. The winning story will also be published on the Write Practice.
