A contest that gives life to inanimate things.
To Forum Post
Welcome to the Personify Writing Contest!
From its name itself, this contest will showcase your prowess in personification.
One simple rule is to make a thing or an object ALIVE. Give it an emotion, an ability to talk, and a feeling to express what it'd been hiding and wanting to tell us human beings. Its emotion may vary according to how you word your piece. It could be depressed, ecstatic, sad, angry, anxious, or even vengeful. You have the liberty to choose its emotion.
Extended rules to put this forum in order
In a static or book item, write something about the Object of the Month. It could be in the form of poetry, rant, a letter/message, or some kind of declamation piece. Imagine yourself to be this object and write your message for us humans.
Use the first person point of view. Make your piece brief with word count not more than 500. Don't forget to add word count within your item.
Properly rate your content base on Writing.com's "Content Rating System (CRS)" . Entries with 18+ ratings are accepted provided that it doesn't show hints of foul words, cursing, sex and affection with the inanimate object. Keep forum post clean for everyone.
This is a monthly contest which opens every first of the month and closes on every end. The host may or may not review your piece and all submitted pieces can be edited until the closing date. Only one entry per person per month.
We reserve the right to hold prizes if there are not enough entries. All qualifying entries for the current round will be carried over to next. One winner will be awarded if there are only 3-5 entries, two winners for 6-9 entries, and three winners plus honorable mentions if more than 10 entries.
Entries non-compliant to the aforementioned rules are considered non-qualifying. Judges' decision is always final and irrevocable.
