Good news writers! DeviantART is holding a werewolf writing contest! I’ve lost count of how many times one of our readers have mentioned that they write werewolf stories, well here’s your chance to show us what you’ve got and win some prizes!
According to the DA news post:
After a long delay, the next official #WerewolvesAtHeart group contest is officially under way!
The contest deviation must be in short story format based upon the writing prompt as outlined below:
“You wake up shackled to a chair and can’t remember how you got there. Two voices are talking. You recognize one of them.”
This prompt is purposefully loose; we decided to encourage as much freedom as possible while at the same time giving enough of a framework to maintain some kind of direction.
The goal of this contest is to create the most interesting werewolf story you can think of. You can use the mood alluded to by the prompt or take it in a completely different direction. The story can be tragic or cheerful, suspenseful or carefree, happen night or day, in the summer or winter, in the city or the forest, in modern times or old, it’s up to you! The more creative and original, the better!
Contest Deadline is August 7, 2010.
As for the prizes, first place gets the choice of a Goldenwolf print (she drew the beautiful picture on the right), a cell-shaded drawing of a character from your story or a 3 month premium membership. Awesome right? For more on the prizes and the rules go HERE.
As a big time deviantART junkie, I absolutely love their contests and I highly recommend that you guys enter in. If you aren’t a member, it’s very easy to join.
Thanks to Werewolf-News.com for bringing this awesome contest to my attention.
