    Default Winter Writing Competition 2017!

    winter writing competition!



    in our hearts forever

    insta cred here

    it's time for...

    WWC 2017 - 2018! ♥


    So,

    It's a cold day. A lone traveler finds themselves lost astray, wandering the endless woods for miles and miles on end. It seems that hope is far out of sight. Their canteen of water is nearly empty; and of what's left, it's frozen, chipped icicles soon to stab the jugular. Just at the edge of dawn when the world is still, silent, drenched in darkness, the traveler happens upon a coffee shop. Open up your hearts to the warmth and love inside: camaraderie and creativity is here!

    IF I CAN WRITE THAT SAPPY PORTION, I EXPECT YOU ALL TO ENTER TBH. WELCOME TO WINTER WRITING COMPETITION 2017-2018, the biggest classic writing she-bang around these parts! We're back for our thirty-first iteration and we're ready to rock, so get your drinks ready, stay warm, and open us up to your world!

    SUBMISSION GUIDELINES


    • You may submit a story from December 1st, 2017 until January 5th 2018, at 11:59 P.M. PST. Any story submitted for grading before or after this time frame will be deemed ineligible for this competition. You cannot edit your story after the deadline passes.
    • To submit your story, simply post your story on one of URPG's three forum branches and link it to this thread in a post. Please put the demarcation WWC somewhere in the story thread title!
    • You may write as many stories during this period as you wish! However, you may only submit one story into the WWC.
    • Your entry may be no longer than 150,000 characters.
    • You must be a member of the URPG to participate in WWC. If you're not a member yet, sign up right over here! We'd love to have you in our happy bubbly family!
    • Please abide by our graphic content rule for WWC stories.
    • You may submit a story for cash for WWC, and you may enter a story using Fourplay mons in WWC.


    VOTING GUIDELINES


    • Stories will be voted on in rounds after submissions close. Also, we pay you. We pay you more if you vote often.
    • You must be a member of the URPG to vote. Sign up today to join our lovely community!
    • When voting, vote for your favorite story within the round, not your favorite person. Winners should be selected based upon the quality of their writing, depth of creativity, and amount of work put into the story.
    • If your story is featured in a round, you can still vote without damaging your standing, so don't let that hold you back!
    • When voting, please send me a private message with the stories you liked the best in that round, with +3 being your first pick / favorite and +1 being your third pick. The story that has the highest combined tally in that round will proceed to the finals!
    • Include a two-sentence summary of your story in your private message. For example:


    1. Three Routes Outside Palletown, Kanto - In this shocking thriller, a limitless mom of a ten-year-old Trainer defies the local Officer Jenny's to figure out who murdered her daughter! It's a race across three different towns in the region to trace down exactly what happened, and oh there's a huge Taurus fight in the middle here with some amazing sociohistorical critique to real life places, but the conclusion is that she may never know! + 3 points


    2. Throh: Solrocks Are Us. Our favorite fighting-type Throh, from outer space, is back yet again in this charming sequel! Throh, in a series of uncontested fights with multiple space gods, Throh ends up defeating the League of Justice with an overwhelming victory. He yet again makes it to the top of the Pokemon league, but learns a valuable lesson along the way: it's always been about the people who mattered, and not actually about winning after all! + 2 points


    3. Murder on the S.S. Anne - In this classical murder mystery archetype, our main character, the Duke of Johto,
    ends up at the center of a series of Pokemon faintings aboard the S.S. Anne! He interviews multiple people, including ex-gym leaders, sailors, and the story's internal narrator all to discover that he himself is actually the killer. Quite a thriller indeed! + 1 point
    * i haven't seen any of these movies yet pretend these are decent pls


    P R I Z E S

    these will be decided soon! Keep your eyes peeled...
