Submission deadline May 28, 2021
Back for a third 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 14 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 65,997 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: www.theliteralchallenge.com/registrationltp and will be open until 28 May.
There are two types of entry:
TIMED ENTRY – You must submit a new and complete piece every day before the 10am deadline.
SIMILE ENTRY - It's like the Timed route, but you can submit as and when you wish. Perfect for anyone who doesn't like the stress of tight deadlines.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
