I know most of you guys wont be doing this, but I'm going to have a writing contest on here. Your article can be anything such as poem, or short story, or even a descriptive piece. Prizes will be given so read on!!!
If you're going to do a short story..write about anything your heart desires. I will read any length. If you're going to do descriptive, then just describe something using alot of detail. Description there shoulde be alot of figurative languase, presonifation and similes are really good!!! Poems are fine too. I'm looking for that poem that conveys a different messgae or tells a story. I'm looking for that different angle:)
Prizes!!! Top 7 writers will be entered into a drwing to win a giftcard of your choice. After that we'll pick the top 1 and it will be sent in with my aunt(whos a publisher) your name and you will get credit.This an oppurtunity of a lifetime!!! My aunt is a very big publisher and she does this all the time. Goodluck!!

Well I have a piece I would like you to read but it hasn't been posted yet and I don't have time to paste it onto this forum right now... Can I tell you when it DOES post?? What kind of a contest is this, anyway? Don't really understand...

Would you mind reading my descriptive piece Lurking Shadows, I think you'd like it. Also, thanks for posting this contest, it sounds like you want to be a publisher when you grow up.

Hello to all! I just wanted to thank each of you of letting me read such well crafterd pieces. I read things from farmers, to shadows, to even queens. These were all interesting pieces. I just want to let you know that I also posted a contest on wattpad, deviantart, kidpub, and quizzo. Overall I had 24 submissions;) I'm going to hold another contest at the end of the month. it'll be more of a competition so please look forward to that:)
I could only choose 5 pieces that make the cut but there were honorable mentions. All winners are from teenink so here we go to see who advances to the next level...
1). The Farmer's Album by" bcookie" 2). The Script by "WhenItRains21" 3).Lurking Shadows by 'KateyKat" 4). The Hero by "bcookie" and 5). The Piano of Rehgale by " super mario prose" honorable mention goes to "Fire and Ice" that was an awesome piece;) top5, base your story around this prompt "the fence-use this as the theme of your story" try to make these a little shorther and remeber creativity is key!!!!
