Hello fellow writers.
As promised, the new contest will begin today.
As per the crowd sourcing of this thread
we have compiled a few different
themes to go along with our format.
The format will be Radio Drama/ Tele-play in the same style as H. G. Well's
War Of The Worlds.
As this is not your typical writing contest, there will be a choice of themes. You may submit a story for each individually, or a create one that
encompasses all of them.
The themes are the following:
1. World War 3.
(Current event, or events leading up to or during.)
2. The World After Conflict.
( post apocalypse) * Although this doesn't have the be a world war scenario, but could be also a small
regional conflict that leaves major changes in it's wake. This does not need to be man made either.
3. The World Of 2077.
(For the sci-fi inclined)
4.The World Beyond Life
(For the Metaphysics and Philosophy inclined)
As these themes are all somewhat interconnected, once could make use of time travel for example to write a bit about all of them.
Also, being in a radio drama format, the length of them is not determined by character count, but by actual reading count. The stories should be
no shorter than 5 minutes and no longer than 10 minutes.
The following article
can be used to get an example and some general guidance
into writing radio dramas, but it's really not that complicated.
Pay special attention to scene detail and character information.
All submissions must be done no later than Wednesday May 9th 2013 at Midnight.
(Special consideration will be given to those who PM me if they are unable to follow the time frame due to unforeseen circumstances.)
All T&C's apply and the title MUST contain [RSWC].
Please also include which THEME you will be using, by placing it in bold at the top of your OP.
There will be 3 winners
chosen based on stars and flags received. Each winner will receive writer status and 5 applauses each.
**Depending on how popular this contest becomes, the winning entry may be used in a Collaborative Writing project. If enough interest in generated
and there is request for a 2nd contest of this nature, the 1st place winner will also choose the Theme for the next contest.**
Only individual entries will be counted, which means no part 2's or things of that nature. You may write and post them as a continuation of your
story, but the contest will only count the first submission.
Please use this thread for Q&A as I will be closing the other shortly.
Well gang, this is YOUR contest, so get to writing and give our membership something to talk about!
