Had to wait forever, but it is on, people!!!
The battle will have 5 teams with 12 people each.
Everyone will write their own entry for the battle.
I will post your specific teams in upcoming posts.
The first round is called Words, words, words!
The first round is called Words, words, words! (get it? :P)
The first round will be elimination of 8 people from each team which means that only 4 people from each team will go in round 2.
I will post further round details as we go.
I would like to mention something at this point: The main goal here is to have fun in writing and explore new grounds.
Your creativity tells your story, and that is integral to you, I hope you all experiment and take something new from this!
Here's some motivation I offer myself when I am not feeling the best about my writing: *HELL, let it be awful, write the worst poem ever, it will still count because YOU tried something new and exciting and it f***ing felt good!*
Thank you for listening to this pep talk 😂
Anyway coming back to our jazz...
The theme for round 1 will be Childhood stories.
The word limit is 200 words. If you exceed it, you'll be disqualified.
Stick to the theme but also remember, this is about your story, make it your own, and don't try to tell someone else's story.
Dig in your creative magic and find what speaks to you the most and give us that.
Plagiarism = Immediete disqualification.
