Inkitt has asked me to spread the word: they are searching for the next J.R.R. Tolkien or J.K. Rowling!
What, am I made of glass?
Here is their media release regarding their latest writing competition:
Take us to an exciting new place in Inkitt's new Writing Competition - Epic Worlds: A New Adventure!
What is Inkitt?
Inkitt is a free writing platform where authors can get creative and watch their stories grow, and they’re opening a new writing contest for entries this spring. Inkitt is a place for writers and readers to collaborate, trade feedback and ideas to improve their work. In the long run, Inkitt’s goal is to help writers get the exposure they deserve and the publishing deals they want without worrying about the impediments and unfairness of traditional printing and self-publishing.
Writing Contest: Epic Worlds - A New Adventure!
This month Inkitt’s writing contest is "Epic Worlds: A New Adventure". Take millions of readers on an epic journey with your best fantasy stories. Submit ancient tales about dragons and griffins, or tell your vision of the future through a science fantasy story. Unleash your imagination and show what you've got and write a truly unforgettable fantasy adventure. Write an adventure that Bilbo Baggins would envy, one that enchants and excites, astounds and has everyone on the edge of their seats.
The contest will begin on May 6th and will close on June 3nd. It is free to enter and you can submit any fantasy story of up to 15,000 words. As per usual, authors will retain all rights to any work they submit.
