WriterVana holds a writing contest every month to act as a fun challenge for everyone on the Discord server! A wide variety of themes will be shuffled through each month to encourage writers to explore out of their comfort zone and to boost their creativity. Thus, one month could have poetry as the competition, the next month could have short stories, another month could work on flash fiction, etc.
To learn about rules prizes, and other details, head on over to/join our Discord server!
Mythology exists across the span of human history, and amidst those, countless storytellers have invented fantastical mythological creatures...
In November, you'll be challenged to write a story about any existing mythological creature(s) from folklore, legends, and fairytales all across the globe. You can write a story in the perspective of a creature; you can write about interacting with these creatures; you can write about a shapeshifter; etc. You can choose to write about only one creature, or you can feature multiple in the story, the only requirement being that you have to choose one creature as the main focus of your story.
Your piece can be as short as flash fiction or as long as a short story. Choose whichever form of storytelling best conveys the story you would like to tell!
