Registration for Like The Prose Writing Challenge closing soon, The Literal Challenge

Description

Submission deadline May 28, 2020

Back for a second year, Like The Prose is a writing opportunity from The Literal Challenge - a small social enterprise that brings together a community of writers, wannabe writers and newbies through creative challenges. Over the last few years, we’ve run 9 different challenges, in which people are encouraged to write a new piece of writing every day, that has so far inspired the writing of almost 50,000 new pieces of writing.

Do note: in light of the current situation, we are offering Like The Prose on a commit-what-you-can basis, so everybody is welcome, regardless of how much (or how little) they can add to the pot.

The way it works is simple: Throughout June, participants will be sent a daily brief and have 36 hours to write a short story in response. The idea is to get writing and produce something creative every day. At the end of the month, it’s up to participants how they choose to develop any, all, or none of their pieces.

Stories can be of any length and in any language.

Registration is now open through the website: https://www.theliteralchallenge.com/liketheprose  and will be open until 28 May.

There are two types of entry:
TIMED ENTRY - as per the rules, the money you send will be kept in a pot (minus admin fees) and then distributed between all those who completed the challenges to the daily deadlines.

CREATIVE ENTRY - if you don't fancy the stress, you can just choose to pay for the challenge, and you will not be entered into the reward pot at the end. This means you can deliver the files whenever you like.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Many thanks and have a fantastic day,
Alex (The Literal Challenge)
