#LaterHaters Writing Challenge

Closed for Entries, thank you to all of you who participated.   

Wattpad has teamed up with AT&T to say #LaterHaters. Whether you've experienced online cruelty or even at times been a bully yourself — let's come together to make a change. Let's start a conversation that becomes a movement. The more of us there are, the louder our love can be. Let's drown out the haters with hearts.

If you could block out the haters, shut down the trolls, and put love on BLAST, what would you say? Your challenge is to create a 500-word short story or message of positivity that you would say to someone else or want to hear said to you.

Tag your story with #LaterHaters and post the link to your completed story in the comments on the story on the NoMoreBullying profile here. The top 10 stories as selected by our Wattpad staff will be featured in a reading list on the profile, and sent to AT&T's #LaterHaters committee for judging.

One lucky winner, as selected by AT&T will be flown to LA for an all-expenses paid trip to meet with one of AT&T partner influencers

Consider thought-starters below for your entries:

· Is there a mantra that you and your friends have to stay positive?

· Maybe there was a time in your life that you saw someone else in need and you stepped in to help and show love

· Is there an event in your life that was a turning point for you to band together with your friends and spread love?

· How could your cellphone/mobile device be used to help spread positivity?

Deadline now extended! Make sure to submit your stories by November 20, 2017.

More info on the contest and the guidelines for entry are here. Please do not post your entries on this story or the Wattpad profile, they must be posted on the story on the NoMoreBullying profile which is here. Thank you.
