Contest returning August 2021
Welcome to the World Weaver’s Championship!
There are many contests on W.com which look at genre stories or answers to a given prompt.
The World Weavers’ Championship is my effort to expand on where the other WDC contests leave off. Here we’ll tackle the set, the cultures and politics and the part your world plays in your story. That’s not to say that this is a strictly fantasy or sci-fi contest! This applies just as much to the fictional representations of contemporary or historical settings.
When the contest is not running, come visit World Weavers' Network .
Round Ten commences August 2021
Round Ten will run from 7 to 22 August 2021 (14 days : 7 prompts)
Every second day of the Championship a new prompt will be issued at 7pm BST (2pm) WDC time. Contestants then have 48 hours in which to compose and upload their entry. Late entries will be marked down and three late entries disqualifies the contestant.
You must complete every prompt of the round to qualify for the winners’ podium. It’s recommended you register your interest before the first prompt is issued.
Each entry must be linked in a post in this forum using either the LD-item or F-entry format.
All entries must be newly written for the contest.
There is no minimum or maximum word count, but you must provide a word count for each entry within the item.
All ratings and genres are accepted.
Editing an entry after submission is not allowed.
