I know a lot of readers are also writers, so I figured I should post about this amazing contest going on right now at inkpop.com. In honor of The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood, inkpop is hosting a contest that asks members to write a poem or short story about a forbidden love. Almost anything under 20,000 words is acceptable, though, honestly, I haven't read/voted on any of the submissions that are that long.
So here's how to enter. Go to inkpop.com and create a free account. From there, go to the contest page and click on ENTER. From there you can upload anything on the topic of forbidden love, and include a cover page for the writing. After the writing is submitted, other people can read and vote on your entry to decide a winner of the contest who will win a $2,000 H&M shopping spree.
Inkpop has done one other contest like this before, and that was in association with the Supernatural Summer author tour where the prompt was to write on something supernatural. I got the chance to meet the winner of that contest at the Supernatural Summer tour, and she said she enjoyed writing it, so take this chance as time to write down an idea and get feedback. Even better, you can write up to five contest entries for this one. So get working!
I have submitted two entries, one on a whim and one I really enjoy. The first one is entitled Forever and the second is One Four Three. It would be great if any of you guys who read this blog and have an inkpop account would go and read my entries and offer your honest review and vote. If you enter the contest and would like to, you may post the link to your submission(s) in the comments section.
