For the sixth day of Ratmas, the tutoring team is excited to announce that we will be bringing back the monthly tutor writing challenges and contests! We absolutely love the way that these contests have encouraged and highlighted member writing on the site and are so excited to have them return as a recurring event.
For those who aren’t aware, tutor writing challenges and contests generally focus on encouraging the lovely writers on this site to push themselves, be it to write with new characters, write in a different style, or even just finish a thread. They tend to be a beautiful showcase of just how wonderful of writers the members of site can be - and they have fun prizes, of course!
We’ll be kicking off the new year with our first contest: a picture-based writing challenge! Below is a picture of a winter scene to match the season of Ratmas. Your challenge is to describe it in a single paragraph.
The catch? You can’t use the following words: white, green, trees, snow, forest, light, or woods. You can write your paragraph from the perspective of one of your characters, or you can just write a short description - whatever you’re most comfortable with!
The tutors will read through the submissions (to be posted below) and will choose our favorite as the winner. Our decision will be based on a number of things, from prose to creativity to a writer pushing themselves to write in ways they never have before. We encourage you to embrace the challenge fully and have fun with it! You can use the very short form found below to post your submission:
The winner of the contest will receive one concise bio. Entries are due by the end of the day on Sunday, January 5th.
