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!
Literature most commonly hides a theme, a universal idea that stretches across the entire story. In April's contest, you'll write a story based off a central theme!
As writers, you don't necessarily need to consider theme when you write. Oftentimes, the job of concluding a theme is the reader's. But for this contest, you'll pick a theme to be inspired by.
Your piece can be as short as a poem or as long as a short story. Choose whichever form of storytelling best conveys the story you would like to tell!
