“Unleash Your Creativity in the 5th Season of the India Writing Project: A Literary Odyssey Awaits!”
Immerse yourself in the wonderful world of literature and storytelling with the India Writing Project, an annual English writing contest now in its 5th season! This platform provides an opportunity for budding writers to experiment, innovate, and let their creativity flow in their preferred genres, from poetry and essays to articles and short stories.
This competition not only tests the writing proficiency but also the storytelling capabilities. With no restrictions on themes and topics, this contest gives you the freedom to let your imagination run wild. Perhaps you want to transport your readers to a futuristic world, much like the iconic pulp sci-fi master Terry Bisson, known for delivering headlines from a timeline defined by the absurd for more than two decades (Source: Margret Grebowicz, The New Yorker). Or maybe you want to delve into the roots of human emotions and relationships, drawing your readers into the complexity of everyday life.
Whatever your preference, the India Writing Project aims to encourage all forms of creative storytelling. But remember, your content must be original, and plagiarism is strictly prohibited. Your literary piece needs to be within 50 to 1500 words and written in English.
The competition is an excellent opportunity for emerging writers to gain recognition. Top entries will be honored with cash prizes and publication in a national daily. Not just that, all participants are guaranteed a participation certificate and constructive feedback report from our panel of accredited authors. This will help you understand the strengths and areas of potential improvement in your writing, helping you hone your skills further.
The panel of judges, kept anonymous, will evaluate submissions on several criteria, including clarity of writing, consistency, the style of narration, subject, and more. This is to ensure that all participants receive a non-biased judgment.
Registration is ongoing, with slots being filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. The fees range from Rs. 699 for a single entry to Rs. 1699 for a triple entry.
The India Writing Project is not only a contest but a celebration of the art of storytelling. Regardless of the type of storyteller you are, this platform will provide you with the opportunity to share your unique perspective and challenge your writing abilities.
So, what are you waiting for? Dive into the world of the India Writing Project, express your creative thoughts, and become a part of this evolving literary community. The final day for submissions is 30 October 2023, and the results will be out on 30 November 2023.
Gear up for an exhilarating literary journey with the India Writing Project. Happy writing!
