“Unearth Your Inner Storyteller: India Writing Project Invites Entries for 5th Season of Literary Contest!”

In the intricate art of storytelling, correspondence serves as a beautiful, time-capsule, providing a glimpse into the lives and times of the individuals involved. It’s storytelling that carries the essence of the era and the people it was written by and for. Such is the case with the artist David Wojnarowicz’s letters to a Parisian boyfriend, which offer a peek into his life before the onslaught of AIDS. (Source: David O’Neill, New Yorker)

Just as the letters illustrate the artistry of Wojnarowicz, we at India Writing Project believe that each piece of literature has a unique story to tell, a story that we are eager to hear and share. Our annual writing contest is back for its fifth season and is open to all storytellers who have a tale to convey. If you’re passionate about writing and wish to express your skills, this could be the perfect platform for you.

With no age bar, no restriction on subjects, and a variety of genres to choose from, our contest is designed to encourage everyone to express themselves through writing. Be it essays, poems, articles, or short stories, we accept submissions on any topic or subject as preferred by the participants. The enchanting world of literature awaits your valuable contributions with prizes up to INR 51000 and publication opportunities in national dailies.

Just like David Wojnarowicz’s letters depicted his love, his fears, his art, and the energy of his life before AIDS, we firmly believe that every piece of writing, regardless of form, can convey the depth of human emotions, the intricacies of relationships, and the complexities of life.

At India Writing Project, we not only provide a platform to showcase your talent but also offer meaningful feedback to help you improve your craft. Each participant receives a feedback report from our panel of accredited authors that offers valuable insights into their writing.

We are on the lookout for original works, not formerly published or exhibited before the competition deadline. Plagiarism is strictly prohibited, and any entries found violating this shall be disqualified. A minimum of fifty words to a maximum of fifteen hundred words per entry is allowed. Submissions are open until 30th October 2023, with the results to be announced on 30th November 2023.

Take this opportunity to express your story, your thoughts, your emotions through the magical realm of literature and join us in our quest to celebrate and cherish the art of writing.

Experience the thrill of storytelling, the beauty of literature, and a love for writing at the India Writing Project. Register today and let the world hear your story.
