Howdy all from Forest, we are doing a thing!
Forestian Autumnal Writing Contest
Welcome! Forest is proud to announce its first writing contest! Judged by a panel of three Forestians, this writing contest will consist of two categories. Nations are free to enter one or both categories. There will be a winner, one runner up and up to three honorable mentions for each category.
There are two categories: Prose and Poetry. Applicants may enter one or both categories - although obviously not with the same piece of writing!
The prompt is:
It is up to the writer to interpret this however they wish.
Entering the Contest
Entries can be TG'd to any of the judges. Simply state whether it is an entry for Prose or Poetry.
Entries will open on Monday 22nd October and close on Thursday 22nd November. There will be a two week period set aside for judging, with the winners announced on Friday 7th December.
This contest is open to all Forestians and any nations residing in regions that Forest maintains an embassy with.
Entries will be judged on the following criteria: construction of the text, interesting interpretations of the prompt and finally engaging ideas.
Spelling, punctuation and grammar will not officially be judged; however it will be taken into account when looking at the other criteria. If your submission is particularly full of errors to the point it makes the text indecipherable or hard to follow, your submission will likely not score as highly and may be rejected.
As an aside, the kind of skills needed to succeed in this competition are rather similar to the skills needed to write good issues. If you find that you enjoy the submission process, consider checking out the Got Issues? forum!
NationStates, as a website, does have certain rules surrounding offensive material. From the Moderation sticky:
Offensive Material: As mentioned previously, we use the US movie rating "PG-13" standard. Mild swearing may be tolerated, mild sexuality may be hinted, but explicit or excessive versions of either or both will result in moderation intervention.
Bear in mind this would cover material sent via Telegrams too.
Good luck and Happy Writing!
Creative writing basically, to a prompt. All our embassy regions are welcome to get stuck in!
You can count on me. Ill take the necessary preparations.
Update: zombie infestation will be paying a visit soon. Let’s give it a nice warm welcome by ingesting them with some medicine.
Looking to get a nice high score this time around. Anyone who wants to exterminate or horde you can move on out for the duration of the event.
I have erected an impregnable barrier so that none can pass and any who leave may not return.
Barrier will be removed once the infestation is eradicated.
I've started researching a cure. Please do the same. If I see people hording or exterminating they will be ejected for the duration of the infestation.
Wagia and Kalmarth are done. Going to bed for a little while
We finished Wagria, let's do the big guy.
Undivulged Principles and Wagria
Firing all missiles. Double strike.
Looks like we managed to turn the tide.
I haven't done this in a while. Is somebody hording?
I'm going to head home now. I will shoot some more after dinner.
I think we are done
