“Unleash Your Storytelling Potential: Join the India Writing Project and Redefine the Realm of Literature Like Maya Binyam!”
As a community of literature lovers, we are always inspired by compelling narratives that challenge the conventional norms of storytelling. Exemplifying this, we recently stumbled upon Maya Binyam’s début, a tale of an exile returning home, astutely challenging the expectations we place on immigrants and their stories. Julian Lucas, in his review for The New Yorker, commended how Binyam’s work “turns the novel of migration upside down” (source: https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/hangman-turns-the-novel-of-migration-upside-down).
Binyam’s innovative approach to writing and storytelling is an eloquent reminder of why exercises like our India Writing Project are so significant. Creative platforms like ours serve as incubators for unique storytelling approaches. We encourage writers from different walks of life to craft narratives, essays, or poems that bend the rules of traditional writing and narrative structures, just like Binyam’s work.
The India Writing Project is a writing contest open to everyone, irrespective of age or genre preference. It serves as a democratic platform for the sharing and refining of tales, opinions, and expressions. The competition invites submissions from a broad spectrum of literature, including essays, poems, articles, and short stories on any subject or topic. You can share your voice in any style and genre you prefer, reminding us all that the essence of good storytelling lies in its diversity and authenticity.
Whether you’re a seasoned writer or an enthusiast just starting your writing journey, the India Writing Project is a fantastic way to test your storytelling potential. The framework of the contest allows writers to submit original works that have not been previously published or exhibited before the competition submission deadline. We have a strict anti-plagiarism policy to ensure that all entries are the authentic work of the participants.
The panel of judges comprises acclaimed authors who assess entries based on their clarity, subject matter, consistency, and narrative style, among other things. The winners stand a chance to win cash prizes and have their work published in national dailies, a golden chance for any aspiring writer.
In conclusion, we are on the lookout for people who can turn the sphere of writing upside down, just like Maya Binyam. We assure you, the India Writing Project isn’t just a competition; it’s a celebration of the power of the written word. So, gear up, get writing and let your words redefine the realm of literature.
Last day to submit your work is 30 October 2023, and the results will be out on 30 November 2023 for season 5. Stay tuned for more updates on our platform.
In the wise words of Maya Binyam: Be the narrative that challenges conventional storytelling. Be the narrative that changes the world.
