August is here and we have another fun writing contest for you, but this time we're doing something different.
The prompt is fairly simple: Write a story about a character, who discovers a treasure and decides to take it with them, but by doing so, they bestow the wrath of a sea creature upon them.
What kind creature they enraged or what genre your story is, is up to you. Let your imagination run wild!
Your entry must have a minimum of 3000 words, meaning your story can be as long as you like. Novellas or novels will be accepted for this contest. You are also allowed to continue writing your story after the contest is over (we encourage you to do so!)
Regardless of that, our judges will be only reading those first 3000 words, so make them count!
Your story must be new to Wattpad, posted either as a new book on your profile or a new chapter in an existing book.
Please make sure to add the word count for every part you write so we know how much we need to read.
No mature content and no fanfiction please.
How to enter:
Submit your entry by pasting the link and your story title in the comments below.
If entering a chapter in a collection of stories, please make sure to provide us with the link to the actual part that contains your story. It makes our lives easier.
The contest starts now and you have time until August 31, 11:59 pm CEST (Central European Summer Time) to enter.
Entries submitted after that deadline will not be considered.
Feel free to tag some of your friends who might be interested in joining, as well as sharing the contest with your followers.
Also, make sure to support the contestants by reading their work.
What are you waiting for? Get writing! We can't wait to read your entries.
