Theonlythomas' Grepolis Creative Writing Challenge
Task - The task is fairly simple. Write a creative writing piece of between 600 and 1000 words. Your piece must be set in ancient Greece and nothing that wasn’t around then can be mentioned. This is a very open piece and could be about anything from a Hoplite named Bob off to fight a war to a farmer called Jesse who has an encounter with a Greek god.
Method - How does a user compete successfully?
You have 1 week from the competition opening to enter, all entries must be PMed to Theonlythomas by midnight on that day (GMT+1). Any submissions received after this time will not count.
- No plagiarising. It has to be your own work.
- It can be no more then 1000 words (a few over is ok) and no less then 600. If it is outside of these boundaries your piece will not count.
- All normal forum rules apply (Do not use this to insult any other members of the community etc.)
- Voting will be anonymous.
- Campaigning is not allowed; you are allowed to advertise the event/poll (e.g. please check out this poll and vote on which you think is best’ is allowed, but ‘check this out and vote for number 3’ is not).
Victory Conditions - I will post the pieces as they arrive in my inbox, they will be anonymous and please do not reveal who’s is who’s if you know, do not even say something like ‘I think number 1 is Tyrion’s’. Once the competition has ended a poll will be created and this will be open for 1 week.
Prize- There will be prizes for 1st and 2nd place- once the poll is over I will reveal who the winners are (but none of the others, they can choose to do so if they want).
1st place- Forum Title:
2nd place- Forum Title:
And of course, lots of +rep.
