Underrated Stories Contest!


#1

Hello,

I am an author as well and I know at times, how discouraging it can be to see that your story is a lower rank, hiding in the depths of the user libraries, maybe you’ve been feeling discouraged so here’s a contest for you.

This a contest to help support smaller authors and hope to encourage you to keep on writing!

Information:

  • You’re allowed to nominate yourself as well as other people (you can fill in the form for the author or state the author’s name, I’ll PM them informing them to fill in the form!)

  • If there any parts of the form you’re unable to fill in such as an Instagram or Forum name, please just write N/A (most important information is the title of the story as well as author name)

  • If any of you are interested in judging, please just say so - it’d be great to have a lovely team of people to judge the stories.

  • Competition deadline is 16th September!

  • If some of you wish to nominate a judge’s story, you can but this story will be judged by someone other than the judge to avoid a conflict of interest.

Prizes

The winner(s):

  • Characterless splashes and character splashes courtesy of @Days and other willing judges

  • Feature on my Instagram feed, be on my story and highlights

  • Will be on my recommended list on my thread

Runner Ups/Consolation Prizes:

  • A splash if you are interested.

  • Feature on my Instagram story

I’ll make a thread for all the underrated stories you have nominated, and it will act as a special bookstore for you all.

CRITERIA:

  • Your story engages the reader, by means of good storytelling, directing and visuals.

  • Grammer, spelling and punctuation will play a part in judgment as well.

JUDGES:

@Days (never heard of her)
