Thatโ€™s why weโ€™re proposing a contest divided in four different rounds, each covering a specific topic to be related to ๐•๐• ๐•ง๐•– and ๐•๐•˜๐•“๐•ฅ๐•ข+.

We will post the instructions for the first round once 7 people join

We will post the instructions for the first round once 7 people join (so, shout this out, pretty please? ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ): therefore, weโ€™ll communicate a color to each of you, which must be kept as reference/background images and cover of your submitted story/poem for the whole of the contest.

Hence, by round four, two people will be left, and only one of them will be declared the winner.

If you plan on writing a very short fixed form, such as an haiku, please write more sets of haikus (of whatever other fixed form you have chosen), unless you are highly confident you can portray the whole topic in just three lines.

4. ๐•Ž๐•€โ„•๐”ป = As wind is free, so will your creativity be in this last round. Youโ€™ll be able to write a free form about your own way of seeing love and gender.

Of course, whether youโ€™re heterosexual and/or cisgender, keep in mind that this is an lgbtq+ contest, so strive just the same to directly link your piece to the lgbtq+ values of inclusivity too.

LITTLE TIP: donโ€™t stress too much about all the four phases now. After enough people have joined in, weโ€™ll make a post that is more specific about the criterias and rules you need to follow for each piece you will be asked to submit.
