The Episode Knitters are proud to present our very own “Knit-A-Story” writing contest and we welcome everyone to join!
By launching the contest, we wish to give additional motivation and inspiration to the writers in the community. Since we’re holding this contest as a group of active writers and readers (it’s not organized by Episode!), we won’t be looking at the reader retention or the number of reads. For the writers, it means that you can write a story that you want to write, without trying to make it popular/viral/replayable. Every author has an equal chance to win because the only thing we’ll be looking at is the quality of your story.
The theme of our contest is Journey.
This can be a physical or metaphorical journey. Are you traveling into space, to another country, to another world? Or is it an emotional journey through your mind or emotions? While you can explore the theme freely, your story must be completed with 3 chapters, it needs to be new and written primarily for this contest and you need to follow Episode guidelines. See the full contest requirements on our webpage.
The winning stories (1st, 2nd, and 3rd places) will be added to a special contest shelf in the Story Bookcase on our website and given a shoutout on our Instagram account. Besides that, we’ll feature the community favorite, the story with most votes from the readers. This is a way for you to influence the contest results directly!
The submissions will open on the 1st of July and will close at 23:59 (Pacific Time) on the 31st of August 2018, thus giving you about 8 weeks to write and publish your story.
For more information, see our website competition page.
We can’t wait to read your stories! If you have any questions, you can ask them here, contact us on IG @episode.knitters or contact us via our webpage.
