Group-Sponsored Genre Mixup! Contest
|Deadline:||Jan 4, 2021|
Ever wonder what might happen if you put two genres together? Science Fiction – Western, Historical Fiction - Urban Fantasy, Romance – Paranormal, etc. Some come together easier than others. But what if you took two that no one else thought of and created a story that blew the top off the genre world! Not only is this a character quandary, but a world-building dilemma! We believe in your abilities to do just that.
Third Drawer Down is the place where everything fits, all genres, characters, ages and worlds. We make this menagerie work. Now we invite you to mix your genres and come up with a story like no other. Let the writing begin, and the clash of the story ideas gel, as we show the world that Scrib has no boundaries!
Prize money for this contest is provided by the Scribophile Writing Contest Prize Fund.
