“Unleash Your Inner Storyteller: Join the India Writing Project and Let Your Words Reshape the World of Literature”

Are you an unpolished diamond in the field of writing? Perfect your craft with the India Writing Project, your gateway to storytelling, literature, and creativity. This is not just a contest. It is an opportunity, a platform that allows you to express your thoughts, your imagination and your experiences on a blank canvas without any restrictions or inhibitions. Whether you’re a budding writer, a seasoned scribe, or simply someone who enjoys spinning tales, the India Writing Project is for everyone and anyone who appreciates the art of writing.

We believe that every story deserves to be told and heard. Hence, there are no restrictions on the topic, genre, or style of your submission. An essay, a poem, an article or a short story – let your creativity run wild. The main objective of the India Writing Project is to bring out the storyteller in you. We encourage participants to explore a multitude of genres and subjects, and not be confined to the traditional boundaries of literature.

The India Writing Project is also a space for unbiased judgement and inclusive participation. This is highlighted by our policy of anonymous judging, where our panel of accredited authors review submissions without any knowledge of the writers’ identities. Their expertise in analyzing the clarity of writing, subject, consistency, style of narration, and more ensures that each submission receives the recognition it deserves.

We’re also intrigued by what is left unsaid, by narratives woven in the margins, much like the approach of the Indiana Women’s Prison History Project. As highlighted by author Rachael Bedard, members of this project scrutinize official records not just for what they reveal, but for the omissions they make. This underlying theme of discovering the untold resonates with our ethos at the India Writing Project. While we encourage writers to expose their unique narratives, we also appreciate the power of what’s left untold and how it fuels curiosity and interpretation.

The India Writing Project promises an enriching engagement for all participants. From receiving an e-certificate that can be verified at any time to a report card with valuable feedback from our judges, every participant gains something. Top submissions also have the chance to be published in national dailies and receive cash prizes. So what are you waiting for? Put pen to paper, fingers to keys, let your words flow, and bring your stories to life. The deadline for submissions is 30 October 2023. Start writing and you might just become the voice that literature is yearning to hear.
