My First Contest! #Helpme2020

February 24, 2020

FREE WRITING

17

Hello! I've been looking to practice reviewing, and I love to read others' work, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to start a contest! This is my very first contest ever, so I don't expect too many entries but I hope the prompts are interesting enough. Please comment any questions. Without further ado, let's see the prompts!

Prompt 1: A Child's Eyes
In this prompt, you will write a piece from the perspective of a child from infancy to age six. How does the child perceive the world? What ordinary things seem extraordinary to them? What do they understand about the world? Let your imagination run wild!
Word limit: 1 - 3000

Prompt 2: Unconditional Love
In honor of Valentine's day coming up, this prompt is simply about unconditional love. Whether it be between partners, family, friends, or a pet, write a piece about how love can change the world. This can be your own experience or fictional.
Word limit: 1 - 3000

Rules:
1. Please no excessive cursing or graphic content. PG-13 at most.
2. Your piece should have the #Helpme2020 tag in the title, and the prompt specified in the footnotes.
3. Please comment a link to your piece below to ensure that I get all of the submissions.
4. Both prose and poetry are allowed. I don't care much about your format, so lowercase prose and songs and stuff are all accepted.
5. Have fun!

Prizes:
Each prompt will have a first and second place and honorable mentions if I get enough submissions.
1st place prize: 3 reviews of your choice, 3 likes of your choice, and 2 comments of your choice
2nd place prize: 2 reviews of your choice, 2 likes of your choice, and 1 comment of your choice
Honorable Mentions prize: 1 review of your choice, and 1 comment of my choice

Due Date: Entries will be due on March 1st. Hope fully that should be enough time, but if you need more I am willing to grant extensions.

    Hi, me again. I know this probably doesn't fulfill the prompt, but this is my general idea of unconditional love.
