Diversity writing contest
CONGRATULATIONS WINNERS!

First place: taliah_l for "Invalid Item

Second place: Medie PUBLISHED for "Invalid Item

Third place: Lt. Storm Machine for "Inoculation [13+]


Contest is OPEN for entries!

Write a story that illustrates diversity as a positive force in society.

di•ver•si•ty
diˈvərsitē,dī-/

noun
1.the state of being diverse; variety.
"there was considerable diversity in the style of the reports"




The idea behind this contest is to get people thinking about the ways in which diversity can play a positive role in both individual lives, and society as a whole. This is a concept that is very important to me personally, and as a result I decided to sponsor a competition that would highlight the ways in which diversity benefits us.

Example of diversity include, but are not confined to: Race, sexual orientation, gender, religion, size, species, culture, and age.

Guidelines: any genre; sexuality is fine, but the plot should be story driven, and not gratuitous. Incidental violence that is relevant to the story will be accepted, but again, no gratuitous violence.

Word limits: Minimum 1k, Maximum 5k

Rating: Up to 18+

New stories only, please. You may edit up to the submission deadline.


Submission deadline: Please post submissions in the forum in ritem format {ritem:xxxxxxx} no later than February 14th, 2014, 11:59PM

Entries will be judged based on their success in meeting the prompt, and their ability to engage and convince the reader. Grammar and editing will also be taken into account, as they affect the reader’s ability to fully engage in a story.

Winner will receive:
Awardicon of my choice
Merit badge of my choice
