All Aboard! Writing Contest07:43
Titanic – it’s coming back to theatres in irresistible 3D, meaning we’re all going to drown once more in Rose and Leo’s doomed love, not to mention Celine Dion’s unavoidable ballad. And what oddly perfect timing, after recent cruise disasters like the Costa Allegra, which was stranded in the Indian Ocean after catching fire, and the Costa Concordia's tragic grounding and capsizing off Italy's Tuscan coast.
So we’re thinking, there’s got to be more stories than just an Irish immigrant and a privileged young lady. It’s time to tell them!
For our next challenge, write a 300-word story set on a cruise ship. Tragedy on the RMS Titanic? Culinary adventure on a lush Caribbean vacation? Sunburn? Man overboard? Let your imagination set sail! Break a bottle over the prow of inspiration. Launch your sentences boldly out to sea…ok, we’ll stop with the naval puns, it’s time to WRITE!
Back to the usual 300-word limit on this one, and the deadline is 10 PM EST on April 15, 2012—in Titanic terms, that’s one week after the movie re-premieres, and one day after the 100th anniversary of the sinking. WEbook will choose our six favorite winners and award them free entry to PageToFame, our flagship writing contest, and one exceptional entry will receive a copy of Self-Editing for Fiction Writers: How to Edit Yourself Into Print.
To enter, start a new chapter in this writing project. All aboard!
THE FINE PRINT: Contest ends at 10 pm on April 15, 2012. WEbook does not take into account the user ratings when deciding who will win the challenge.
